In brief: Reflex tearing
When your eyes get tired they get very dry, this stimulates tearing from glands in the lids and lacrimal gland, producing reflex tearing.
It is normal to get tearing when the eyes get tired/dry.

In brief: Dry eye
This may be a symptom of dry eye.
When our eyes are dry we get reflex tearing, which is a large amount of tearing trying to replenish the dry surface. Often it is too heavy to drain through the normal channels and ends up running down your cheeks.
