When I yawn my eyes get wattery

Your as stumped as I am, I'm sure. Then again I am the same guy that burst blood vessels in his eyes and can sneeze smoke (separate incidents).

I get annoyed having red, wattery, eyes in a social job that involves eye contact.

Help?

    This is what happens when you yawn.

    Although excessive tearing is probably the result of allergies.

    I think most people get this, not a lot you can do about it other than to stop yourself yawning (I personally hate doing that) or get more sleep.

    Yeah, it's a part of yawning. I'm sure there's some evolutionary explanation for it - maybe moisturizing your eyes so you feel less tired or something.

    Everyone's eyes water when they yawn. Maybe pressure on the tear ducts?

    When you yawn, it places pressure on the nasolacrimal duct, obstructing the draining of tears out of your eyes. I've actually yawned so much that I start to CRY!!

    My eyes water when I yawn, excessively, but I have chronic hayfever anyway.

    It happens to me too and I hate it. I'm lying down and all comfy for sleep, then I yawn and suddenly my pillow is all wet.

    More than once I've yawned at work and my boss asked me if I was stressed out about something (i.e. crying).

    I fucking HATE crying.

    I have some thing where my eyes water excessively for five minutes whenever I lie down. I tell my friends that I cry myself to sleep every night. :P

    You probably have eye cancer. Only keep one eye open at a time and you'll be good.

    Would gripping my pillow tight help as well?

    Man, a friend of mine had the same thing happening, went to the doctor and everything.
    Two days later... Dead.

    Seriously, I'm thinking you are pretty normal in that regard.
