Understanding Watery Eyes in Children

Watery eyes, or epiphora, occur when tears overflow onto the face, despite the absence of crying. This condition is quite common in children and can be caused by several factors, ranging from blocked tear ducts to allergies.

Incidence and Prevalence

Watery eyes can affect children of all ages, but it's particularly prevalent in newborns and infants due to the high incidence of congenital tear duct blockages. In most cases, these issues resolve on their own as the child grows. However, persistent symptoms may require medical attention.
