Excessive lacrimation from eyes during winter, how to cure?
Hello, I am myopic. I am suffering from excessive lacrimation. How to treat this? I would like to understand the reason behind this watering of my eyes. It is indeed bothersome.
@sarthak Your eyes can water or tear up for many reasons, including weather, allergies or, more seriously, an infection. If you find yourself tearing up suddenly, pay attention to what you’re doing or the environmental factors you’re being exposed to when it occurs, as this might help explain why it’s happening. Changes in seasons typically can cause changes to the eye due to the amount of humidity in the air and allergens. As winter approaches and we increase heat at home, work and in the car, the air loses humidity, which causes the eye to become very dry. Your eyes try to help increase the amount of tears produced, but the type of tear produced doesn’t help lubricate the eye and results in watering of these extra tears. The best treatment for this is an oil-based lubricant available over the counter. Your eye doctor can recommend the best products. Most perfumes, hair spray, body spray and air fresheners contain irritants that can cause the eye to become watery and red, even if the product isn’t sprayed directly in the eye. Even just walking through an area with these products in the air can cause irritation.
