Dry Eye Syndrome is a common cause for eye discomfort.
Tears are made by lacrimal glands. There are two types of lacrimal glands: one type produces tears at a steady rate and is responsible for normal eye lubrication. Another type produces large quantities of tears in response to eye irritation or emotions (ie. crying). Tears are drained from the eye via small openings in the eyelids (puncta) into the Naso-lacrimal duct.
Dry eyes occur when the lacrimal glands do not produce enough tears, the tears
evaporate too quickly or the naso-lacrimal duct drains tears too efficiently. Certain medications
can also cause dry eyes. Autoimmune disease such as Sjorgrens syndrome can also cause dry
Excess tearing from “dry eye” sounds illogical, but if the tears responsible for maintenance lubrication do not keep the eye wet enough, the eye becomes irritated. When the eye is irritated, the lacrimal gland produces a large volume of tears that overwhelm the tear drainage system. These excess tears then overflow from your eye.
