Watery Eyes Treatment

Treatment of a watery eye is dependent on the underlying cause. This may involve removal of a foreing body or ingrowing eyelash, or opening of a blocked tear duct.

A tear duct may be blocked at the opening on the lid (the punctum) or deeper down in the nose. Treatment may be as simple as snipping open a narrowed punctum, tightening of a lax eyelid, or may involve bypassing a blocked nasolacrimal duct. Your eye specialist can assess the cause of your watering and will advise you on the treatment that is appropriate for you.
