What could be causing my son's eye to water?

My 11 year old son's eye keeps watering, just the one on the left. It's not pink at all, it doesn't itch, and it just started yesterday. I'm taking him to the doctor if it persists, but just wondering if anyone out there had a similar experience?

  • It's not to weird that it's only in one eye. I have really bad allergies and my left eye is always the one that itches/swells up the most or starts to get irritated first.

  • Sounds like allergies to me. My eyes do the same to me during allergy season (the worst is my left eye). As Ashlynnsmommy07 said it could also be a speck of dust, dirt or an eyelash that is causing it to water.

  • That's kind of what I thought, but is it weird that it's only in one eye?
