In brief: Reflex tearing

Reflex tearing occurs when the eyes get irritated and dry, your description sounds like dry eye.
Initial treatment is frequent artificial tears during the day, ountment at night, warm compresses a few times a day, and omega-3 fatty acid supplements. If no improvement, you should see an eye doctor for further evaluation.
