In brief: Flushing with water

Washing the eyelids with lots of water or using a contact lens solution to rinse the eyes can be very helpful when your eyes are really itching and watering.
Cool, wet towels on the eyes can also relieve some of the itching. These may not give complete relief though, and that's the time when you need medicine.

In brief: Antihistamines

Although not as effective as eye drops, oral antihistamines may offer some relief for red itchy watery eyes.
