Tear duct surgery may be warranted when the tear ducts are blocked causing peripheral vision or issues with the eye such as excessive tearing. Tear duct reconstuction surgery may be required at that point to remove the blockage in the ducts. Various techniques exist to allow for alternative drainage. Oculoplastic facial surgeon Dr. Schwarcz performs dacryocystorhinostomy or DCR via surgical incisions to create a new route for drainage to occur.
