In brief: Irritants
There are a variety of air born irritants that can trigger this response.
Smoke, pollen , fragrance from laundry detergent , cleaning fumes, etc. Some minor viruses will irritate the eyes this way also. Use of artificial tear products will sometimes remove the irritants. As long as the eyes don't get gooey & lids are not inflamed you can watch it at home.
