Eye infection or inflammation can cause tearing, redness, itching and sensitivity to light

Allergies can cause itchy and watery eyes along with sneezing

Foreign body in eye can cause irritation with excess tearing

Home remedies

Apply warm compresses to the eyes, massage the tear duct area, and keep the eyes clean.
