In order for the eye to remain healthy, it must remain moist. The purpose of normal tears is to lubricate, nourish, and protect the eye. When you blink, the eyelid spreads the tears over the surface of the eye and pumps tears into a "duct" that drains the tears into your nose. The most common causes of excessive tearing is a blockage of the lacrimal (tear) duct, malposition of the tear duct, and a deficiency in the production and/or composition of tears. Dr. Morton specializes in tearing conditions and can determine the cause and appropriate treatment for your Wet Eye.
