Causes of watering eyes
Watering eyes usually occur if too many tears are produced or if they cannot drain away properly.
Diagnosing watering eyes
Your GP may refer you to an ophthalmologist for an examination if no obvious reason for your watering eye can be found.
Treating watering eyes
Treatment for watering eyes is not always necessary. Having treatment will depend on how severe the problem is and what is causing it.
