Are Your Eyes Watering?

Patients often come to our clinic and say “my eyes are watering a lot recently”. Some say “it can be embarrassing when my eyes water so much that people think I’m crying!” Believe it or not, in most cases, the reason this happens is because the eye is dry which is caused by a lack of tears. The condition is called Dry Eye and is a progressive and chronic condition that can occur at any age. Dry eye is a commonly encountered complaint, with about 38% of the general population affected. Interestingly, it is more common in women.
