I can emphatise with that. Are there any specific observations which make your eyes water? Usually, I won't bother with looking at people at all unless they get in my way, and focus on my destination instead.

It might help...

I get the watery eye feeling, and I think thats because I am focused so much on TRYING to make eye contact that I don't blink enough and my eyes start to water. Sometimes I even worry that they will notice if I blink to much, or some outrageous thing like that.

That actually makes sense. This happens to me when walking between classes in the halls, or when I'm very stressed about being visible, etc. My eyes feel like when you stick your head out of a car and the wind blows on them. I think I squint a bit too, which in retrospect must look pretty weird.

It's such a weird feeling. It's like blushing in the sense that it sometimes comes without an tangible feeling of anxiety, and it's not something you can just stop. I don't think it lasts long though.
