What Is Excessive Tearing?

Excessive tearing, also called epiphora, is a condition where tears overflow from the tear ducts and run down your face. In more mild cases, you may notice your eyes being continually wet, often resulting in blurred vision.
If you constantly have watery eyes, it may be caused by several different conditions, including:
  • Allergies
  • Blockages in the tear ducts
  • Dry eye
  • Eyelid problems
  • Infections
  • Irritants in the air
  • And more

What Are My Treatment Options for Excessive Tearing?

There are a number of treatment options available for excessive tearing, depending on the underlying cause. When you come in for your consultation, we will work to find what is causing your symptoms and work with you to find a treatment to get your eyes back to their normal function.

Blocked Tear Ducts

If your excessive tearing is due to a blockage in the tear ducts, surgery may be needed to clear the blockage. The good news is that this procedure is usually quite simple and fast. Even in cases where a tumor or growth is blocking the canal, an expert eye surgeon like Dr. Sohrab can quickly clear the blockage.

Allergies

If your excessive tearing is caused by allergies, over-the counter or prescription eye drops may be recommended. These focus on controlling tearing when allergens are present.

Other Causes

If you are suffering from watery eyes from another cause, we will work with you to find a personalized treatment for your situation. These can range from reconstructive surgery after an injury to antibiotics to tackle an infection.

Should I Get Treatment?

At first, it may seem more like an annoyance than a problem. But healthy tearing is vital to keeping your eyes and eyelids in good health. That is why we recommend patients visit us for treating excessive tearing as soon as they notice the symptoms. If left untreated, you may also start to notice dryness and itchiness around the eyes and other symptoms.
To get started, you can schedule your consultation with Dr. Sohrab and learn about your treatment options. Once she fully understands your situation and needs, she can match you with a treatment that will get your eyes back into good health.

Excessive Tearing Treatment Recovery and Results

If you have tear duct surgery, there can be a brief recovery period. However, this will vary depending on your surgery. For minor blockages, it will be shorter, while more significant blockages such as tumors may be a little more involved. Dr. Sohrab will provide you with a complete overview of your individual excessive tearing treatment plan ahead of time so you will have every detail needed.

At most, patients may expect about one week of downtime for more involved procedures and only a couple of days for more minor ones. Some swelling and discomfort are normal, but these quickly fade and can be managed with proper care and medication.
