Tearing Problems

tearing problems

If you are producing too many tears, there are many reasons for the actual cause. The main two causes are either making too many tears or improper drainage of tears. Tearing problems may be caused by an obstruction in the tear duct (lacrimal obstruction). Tears become trapped within the sac which may become infected, causing a painful swelling in the inner corner of the eyelid.
