What is Watering Eye?


Watering eye, which can affect one or both eyes, is a condition where tears are produced without any obvious explanation. There is insufficient tear film drainage from the eye(s). Instead of all the tears draining through the nasolacrimal system, they overflow onto the face.

Watering eye (the medical name is epiphora) can happen at any age, but it is most common in young babies (012 months of age) and people over 60.
