watering eyes treatment

Treatment for watering eyes isn't always necessary. Treatment depends on how severe the problem is and what's causing it. Measures you can try yourself. If the underlying cause is dry eye syndrome, try avoiding reading, watching TV and using a computer – you're likely to blink less during these activities, which can make symptoms worse. The use of lubricating eye drops can help ease watering eyes relief. These can be bought over the counter from a pharmacy and your healthcare professional can advise which product is best for you.

It might help to hold a warm, damp, clean cloth over the affected eye for five minutes and at the same time, gently massage your eyelids with the cloth to loosen any material that might be blocking the eye glands.

If a bacterial infection such as conjunctivitis is causing watering eyes, your GP may prescribe a course of antibiotics. If they suspect a virus is the cause, you may be advised to wait for a week or so to see if it resolves itself. If your eyes are watering because of an allergy, antihistamine medication may be prescribed to help reduce the inflammation.
