Why are my eyes watery?
So how do we figure out what is causing my tearing?
What type of tests are necessary?
OK, so now that we know that my tear drain is blocked, how is this fixed?
Tear drain obstruction is surgically repaired with a procedure called a dacryocystorhinostomy, which we call a DCR. This is a surgery performed in the surgery center with you completely asleep. A small incision is made on the side of your nose near the corner of your eye. Through this incision, a new passageway is constructed for tears to drain into your nose, very close to where they normally drain. A silicone stent is placed in this new passageway and the incision is closed. The stent will stay in place for 3-4 months and be removed in the office.
I’m ready to improve my tearing! What is the next step?
the best results.
