Tearing after trauma: The eye tears when it's irritated. This can occur immediately from dirt or a scratch on the surface of the eye. It can be sensitive to light and tear the next day from a bruise of the eye as well. If something is poking the eye like an eyelash the eye can tear. Finally, if the eye is having trouble closing it can dry out and tear. Most often, tearing from trauma is transient.
