-- Watery eyes are an irritating symptom of a variety of conditions.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine lists these common causes of watery eyes:

  • An allergy to particles in the air, such as dust, dirt or dander.
  • An infection of the eye.
  • A blocked tear duct.
  • Eyelids or eyelashes that turn inward and irritate the eye.
  • A foreign substance in the eye.
  • Temporary watering of the eyes can sometimes accompany laughing, yawning, straining the eyes, or vomiting.
