Weepy Eyse
For a number of months now I hav had weepy eyes.  I have not had a cold or flu in years so can not attribute this condition to cold or flue.

What causes weepy eyes and is there anything (hopefully natural) that I can do to treat this condition?

It could be due to either overproduction of tears due to allergies, chronic irritation, keratitis, entropion (turned in eyelid), or other eye diseases - or due to improper drainage of tears into the nose due to blocked nasolacrimal duct, ectropion (urned out, droopy lower lid).  You should be evaluated for all possible causes then after diagnosis, hopefully an effective treatment can be started.
