Watering Eyes Treatment in Kerala

Tears are necessary for the nourishment and lubrication of the human eye. Thus it will  keep our eyes healthy, protect it from irritants and give us good vision. Every time when we blink, our eyes get washed with tears produced by the lacrimal glands. Due to inflammation or irritation, these glands will produce more tears which leads to  watering eyes.

Watering Eyes is a condition where tears overflow onto the face, without any specific reason. Watering eye or epiphora can be developed at any age. It is common among babies under 12 months and older people who are in their late 60’s.
