Watery Eyes Could Be Caused By Too Little Water in the Tear Film

Nature's Tears® EyeMist®

As contradictory as it may seem, the condition known as "watery eyes" can sometimes be attributed to too little, rather than too much water in the eyes. When caused by too little water, the best way to relieve watery eyes is to increase eye moisture content by drinking more water and by misting the eyes and face often with Nature's Tears® EyeMist®.


Watery eye can have several causes. One is obstruction of the "puncta," the tiny drainage holes in the lower eyelid. A primary cause of watery eyes is dry eye/conjunctivitis. These conditions result in the production of inflammatory hormones in the eye, which are extremely dehydrating to the delicate tear film, or basal tears, covering the eyes' exposed portion, which should be 98% water at the surface. Conjunctivitis is frequent associated with dry eye.

When the eye's conjunctiva - the membrane covering the eyes' white part - becomes inflamed, or the tear film becomes dehydrated, reflex tears - the flood of tears usually caused by foreign objects in the eye - are produced to replace the lost moisture. This results in the eye becoming overly watery, with dripping tears, even though the cause may be dry eye.

Nature's Tears® EyeMist® offers the best relief to soothe dry eyes, calm inflammation and reduce reflex tearing. Nature's Tears® EyeMist® may be applied in combination with all eye medications.

Nature's Tears® EyeMist®. The best - and only - all-natural water mist for relief of dry eye and watery eyes.
