Answers to Your Eye Care Questions
Q: My friend's eyes are frequently overly watery. Is it due to dry eyes?
A. Ironically yes, complaints of watery eyes many times can be a symptom of dry eyes. When the basal tear production falters, then the reflex tears are called into play to help out. Unfortunately, the reflex tears, which are meant to help flush out foreign bodies or function in a good "cry", come in too great a volume for the lids to hold the tears. Thus the reflex tears spill over the eyelids and the patient feels their eyes are watery.
