The eyes frequently experience a variety of problems. They include red, watery, foggy, itchy, bulging, and other types of eyes as well as night blindness.

Eyes are the expression of the person. Looking at the eyes gives you much information you cannot get through his or her mouth.

The eyes are kept hydrated, lubricated, and protected from foreign objects thanks to tears. Your eyes may begin to moisten when you experience certain emotions, such as grief, joy, and rage. Spending too much time on the computer or reading books can also cause your eyes to feel fatigued and become too wet.

Additionally, when an object like dust, smoke, a piece of dirt, an eyelash, etc. comes into contact with the surface of the eye, our eyes will produce tears on their own.

The eyes would cease watering after the bothersome particle was flushed out or when you rest your eye after spending some time reading books or using the computer. Uncontrolled tears can happen to certain people.

In the cold or windy weather, you find your eyes watering. Wind makes you tear up.

Dr. Huh Im advises using acupuncture points BL1 and LI20 for teary eyes. Here is his protocol for watery eyes: BL1, GB12, GB20, ST8, DU23, LI20.
