Baxter has always had a pretty bad tearing problem -- it actually turned into an infection right before Christmas. He has pretty wispy hairs right around his eyes that do fall down on the eyeball -- he is so skittish, I could never trim them. When I had him groomed two weeks ago, the groomer got those hairs, and his tearing has been much improved -- not gone altogether, but a lot better. One thing I wondered is if, in addition to the wispy hairs aggravating his eyes, the long hair in his face was also exposing his eyes to allergens he was picking up outside.
So, in my experience, trimming the hair was an improvement. I wouldn't recommend doing it yourself unless your puppy is very calm, though.
