Dry eye/Watery eye

Dry Eye

 

Dry eye syndrome, or dry eye disease, is a common condition that occurs when the eyes do not make enough tears or the tears evaporate too quickly. This leads to the eyes drying out and becoming inflamed (red and swollen) and irritated.

 

Dry eye syndrome is also known as keratoconjunctivitis sicca, or simply 'dry eyes'.

Watery Eye

 

A watering eye (epiphora) is when tears flow out of the eye and roll down the cheek. It usually happens if your tears don't drain away properly or too many tears are produced.

 

These problems can occur as a result of conditions such as Conjunctivitis (eye inflammation), problems with your eyelids, an eye injury, a blocked tear duct or something irritating your eye, such as car fumes.
