What is dacryocystorhinostomy?

If you look carefully at the inner corner of the eye, you will see the tear duct on the edge of each of the lower and upper eyelids which is a duct for entrance of the tear to its drainage system. The duct connects this pore to the lacrimal sac which is located below the inner corner of the eye. The tear in the lacrimal sac drains to the nose via the nasolacrimal duct. If the lacrimal duct obstructs, the tear will drain from the surface of the eye. The solution for this problem is to do a surgery called Dacryocystorhinostomy. Treatment is performed under the supervision of an expert surgeon in the lacrimal duct surgeries (plastic eye surgeon).

• Patients who have Dacryocystitis

The doctor will examine to find out whether these watery eyes are the result of increased tear production or reduction of drain. Along with physical examination ophthalmologist may ask for some images, and after confirmation of the lacrimal duct obstruction, the dacryocystorhinostomy will be planned. Patients should keep in mind to tell the surgeon their medical history, allergies and supplements and medicines they are taking.
