Lacrimal Surgery for Tearing and Infections
Lacrimal surgery addresses the tear ducts system that normally drains tears from the eye surface. This may include the exploration and reconstruction of any portion of the system depending on the location of the closure (stenosis) or obstruction. The location will be determined at the initial consultation and the treatment plan designed at that time. Treatment can be as simple as using eye drops, a minor procedure in the clinic, or may require surgery in the operating room.
