Many people with dry eye don’t realize their condition and seem confused when told, “oh, you have dry eye” they often say, “no, the opposite.” The watery effect is part of the defense mechanism of your eye. The eye keeps producing tears to alleviate your dry eye condition but lacks the necessary elements to have an effect, so you just end up rubbing and irritating your eyes even further.
