Your tears are salty, and they will sniff your eyes and lick their nose to get that salty taste. You are a part of the pack, and grooming each other is a sign of respect! Also, women utilize many beauty products that interest your dog's senses. Perhaps a nicely scented eye cream has also caught your pooches attention.

A dog's sense of smell is thousands of times stronger than humans. So, it seems that the dog could be gathering information from the scent of glands, skin, and hair all over your body and face, including the eyes.
