Lacrimal Surgery

What you need to know

Our tear ducts, which drain away excess moisture from the eye, can become blocked or too narrow to function properly.

Symptoms include watering eyes, gunky eyes and blurred vision.  If fluid is trapped in the duct they can sometimes become painful.  These problems are not dangerous but can become very irritating.

 

We can examine your tear ducts and lacrimal system to ensure they are working properly and if required, perform surgery such as Jones tube implantation or Dacryocystorhinostomy to restore drainage channels.  Our doctors will discuss the most appropriate option with you to improve the symptoms of watery eye or epiphora.
