The first thing is to make sure there is no hair that touches the eyes. Anything that is touching the eye is going to irritate it. When the eye senses irritation (hair, sand, whatever) it stimulates a high production of tears in an attempt to flush out the irritant. If the hair is not taken care of, either by being kept very short or combed out and cleaned frequently, the eyes are in a constant overdrive mode of tear production, resulting in a wet and irritated face. If the hair is not causing the excessive tearing then there is an underlying medical condition and the dog should be taken into the vet for diagnosis and treatment. Since you said he has allergies, I wouldn't be surprised if it is related to that as he could also have environmental allergies. Let us know how it goes.
