I see your offline now.. give me your answer when your back on and Ill answer you in the morning........

Doctor DanB : Watering is usually a sign of some sort of irritation. After having had cataract surgery on both eyes, the very most likely thing to be causing the watering is that the surface of the eyes is inflamed and dry in patches, with the watering being a reflex watering to help counteract that inflammation and drying. Other reasons could be allergies (if you're having significant itching then this is possible), or inflammation inside the eye (called iritis). This would usually be associated with at least some degree of redness, and/or light sensitivity, but not always. If you are using the Blink tear drops regularly, and by that I mean 3-4x/day, everyday and have been doing this for at least a couple of weeks, then it's either. It enough of a treatment for a dry/inflamed eye surface, or that's not the abuse. If you haven't been, I would suggest starting with that, being consistent with the use of them. If you have been, then I would recommend going to see your ophthalmologist as there may be inflammAtiin that has returned from the surgery that may need to be dealt with by prescription medicines.
