Help and frequently asked questions

What causes an eye to become watery and how can it be treated?


Watery eyes are most often caused by an increase in the production of tears. This may occur in one eye or both. Watering eyes are usually caused by either over-production of tears due to irritation to the eye, an allergy or occasionally due to an obstruction of the drainage system which results in the overflow of tears. If you notice that your eyes are often or unusually watery, you should book an eye examination at your optometrist.
