Tearing is a frequently encountered chief complaint in an ophthalmologist’s office. Certain associated atypical symptoms may warrant further workup. The authors present a case of a patient presenting with painful tearing which elicited further evaluation with CT imaging. This revealed a maxillary sinus fungus ball as the cause for the patient’s tearing. Copyright © 2016 The Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System
