Because episcleritis is not caused by external factors, like pollen, your doctor will need clinical tests to find the underlying cause. A blood work-up is one of the most likely steps your doctor will take.

What causes my eyes to water?
Several things can make your eyes water. Watery eyes can be a sign of dehydration: Because your body isn't hydrated, your eyes can feel scratchy and uncomfortable, causing your ducts to respond with tears. Allergies, foods, chemical/environmental exposures or diseases can also be the cause.Helpful? 2 people found this helpful.
