  • If the eyes produce too many tears, the tear ducts become overwhelmed and the eyes become watery. Watery eyes can be caused by strong emotions or laughter, weather, or a range of different conditions.

  • A red, painful bump or inflamed area on the eyelid is called a stye or hordeolum. It's typically caused by bacterial infection of the sebaceous glands at the base of the eyelashes.
