From your limited information, we could not determine for sure why your right eyes will become watery when you turn to your right side. Further information is needed to pinpoint the cause.

For your information, headache can be caused by:

  • Tension-type headache
  • Migraine
  • Cluster headache
  • Sinus headache

Headache can also be caused by other brain structures such as malignancy or benign growth in the brain. However, cases as such occur in small number. Possibility of being diagnosed with cancer is high if the patient has additional symptoms listed below:

  • Sudden onset of the worst headache in your life
  • Blackout
  • Unintentional weight loss

In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints.
