The Possible Complications of a Tearing Disorder

Tearing is a natural response that occurs in the body as a result of a number of factors. When the body overproduces tears, it can result in several unwanted side effects.

Excessive tearing can occur when there is a problem draining the tears, or when the body is simply producing too many tears. Excessive tearing can obscure your sight and cause distorted or blurry vision. When the skin surrounding the eyes is overexposed to tears, it can cause irritation and redness on the surface of the skin.
