Have you ever questioned why your eyes become moist at times? Most of the time, watery eyes will go away on their own without any medical intervention. However, this condition may occasionally become a persistent issue.
There are various causes of watery eyes, including certain eye-related issues and health problems. In this article and according to Healthline, we will explore some of the reasons behind watery eyes, which are outlined below:
1. Eyelash Problems
Many people experience problems with their eyelashes. One or more lashes may fall into your eyes, especially those growing at an unusual angle. Some eyelashes grow inwards instead of outwards, and this can cause significant discomfort and excessive tearing. Seek the assistance of a doctor or a professional to remove the lashes or redirect them in the right direction.
Watery eyes can also result from specific allergies. It could be a reaction to particular foods such as onions, garlic, and others. Watery, itchy eyes may also be accompanied by a cough, runny nose, and other allergy symptoms. If you are experiencing eye allergies, medications and eye drops may help to alleviate them.
3. Foreign Bodies in Your Eyes
In recent times, many people have reported having foreign bodies in their eyes. It could be dust, dirt, or even flying insects. When something enters your eyes, your body produces more tears to flush it out. Even particles that are too small to see, such as those found in smoke or chemicals in foods like onions, can cause this reaction. Once the foreign body is removed, your eyes will stop watering.
4. Dry Eyes
You may have this problem if your body does not produce enough tears or if your tears dry up too fast. Many things can cause these issues, from windy days to medical conditions. Regardless of the cause, your eyes will respond by producing more tears.
