Your eyes are not just the window to your soul, they’re also the window to your health!
Tears play a major role in your eye health. They lubricate your eyes, flush out any foreign particles like dust, fight pathogenic microbes and protect you against microbes and infections—thanks to the antibodies in them.
Tears are produced by the lacrimal glands located under the skin of your upper eyelids and they evaporate to not overwhelm your tear ducts. However, when there are too many tears in your eyes, they make them look glassy and may even drip out. This condition is medically known as Epiphora.
Watery eyes can be caused by environmental factors, health problems, or even eye drops.
If your eyes overflow with tears without any obvious reason that you could name, read this list of five common causes of watery eyes.
