The lacrimal gland is the main producer of tears, it is the faucet of the tear system. After the tears are produced, they hydrate the surface of the eye allowing for a smooth surface that helps to create a clear image. The tears are then drained from the eye through the lacrimal system down into the nose. Any alteration of this system can lead to tearing. Not all tearing eyes have a blocked drainage system, although this is a potential reason for tearing. The position of lids, the quality of the eyelid blink and the condition of the surface of the eye are some of the other factors that can lead to tearing. If you are tearing, your surgeon will direct your treatment according to the factors that are leading to your problem.
