Dr. Hamid Sajjadi answered:

Why do i get teary eyes in the morning?

Blepharitis/DryEyes

Dry_eyes
This is a often repeated question. Blepharitis or inflammatory closure of oil producing glands is stress related and very common these days. The stale oil discharges at night when you are sleep, turns the eye red and watery in the mornings. The other condition that causing teary eyes in mornings is dry eyes. This is paradoxical secretion of crying tears from the main lacrimal gland.

Dr. Tanveer Janjua answered:

Can a broken nose lead to excessively teary eyes?

Broken nose, tearing

Head-eye
Eye tearing is common after any trauma to the nose as a fall, or surgery. It blocks the drainage of the tears which drain normally through a channel (tear duct) into the nose. Once the swelling subsides, tearing resolves.

How bad is it to eat spicy food and get teary eyes?

Harmless

Head-eye
The reasons your eyes may tear when eating spicy foods is that the Seventh Cranial Nerve which is important in the regulation of reflex tear function, also sends nerve endings to the tongue for taste sensation. Capsaicin is a potent irritant contained in spicy foods such as jalapeno peppers. When capsaicin binds to the Seventh Cranial Nerve endings within the tongue, impulses sent along the Seventh nerve for the purposes of taste sensation will also stimulate those Seventh nerve endings responsible for reflex tearing as well as sweating. In any case, this is not dangerous, but simply a collateral reaction based on the sharing of the nerve pathway.

Is there a way to stop from getting teary eyes after you've yawning?

Probably not

Tearing is normal because it helps protect the eyes. There really is no way to stop the teary eyes, but it's good thing because your body is just doing its job.
