I've been reduced to think that this is some kind of evolutionary survival technique. Our eyes water in order to keep out the dangerous vapors the aerosolize from our urine. The watering merely keeps us from going blind. In all seriousness, the last time I saw my gynecologist she challenged me with saying, "You can't shock me with anything, I've heard it all". In all fairness she said this in response to another problem I was having, but after hearing her say that I mentioned that I have the issue of my eyes tearing up when I urinate, to which she told me she had never heard of it. I've thought of consulting a urologist, but since I've had it my whole life and it doesn't cause me any pain or other problems, it is VERY low on my list of priorities. If anyone else finds any answers, I would very much like to know.View Thread
