What Causes Tearing and Watery Eyes?
There are several potential causes of tearing and watery eyes, such as allergies, infections, or even the onset of dry eye syndrome. In some cases, a blocked tear duct may be responsible for this condition. Dr. Wiliams and her team have extensive experience in treating these conditions. We use the latest methods to understand the cause and provide appropriate treatment plans.

Benefits of Treating Watery Eyes
Treating watery eyes can help alleviate many of the symptoms associated with this condition.

But treatment can alleviate all of these problems, providing benefits that include:
- Reduced eye discomfort, burning, and itching
- Better vision due to improved tear drainage
- Relief from tear overflow, which can cause staining or crusting on eyelids and lashes
- Improvement in overall eye and eyelid health

After the Treatment: Recovery
After the procedure is complete, you may experience some redness and swelling around your eyes. This should go away after a few days of rest. You should also begin to feel relief from your symptoms almost immediately; however, it can take a few weeks for the full results to become apparent. Depending on the procedure you had, you may need to take a few days off from work to focus on recovery. Dr. Williams will provide you with a comprehensive outline beforehand of what to expect and how to manage your post-procedure aftercare to achieve the best results possible.
After the Treatment: Results
Once the treatment has taken effect, you should begin to experience the benefits of improved tear drainage and better eye health. You can typically count of these results being long-lasting, allowing you to enjoy clear vision with no more uncomfortable symptoms. However, it will still be important to care for your eyes and avoid any risk factors that could cause the condition to return. We can provide you with expert advice on how to keep your eyes in optimal health following your procedure.
