Hello there......, more than one treatment or procedure is needed before a blocked tear duct is fully opened.... Surgery is usually the preferred option for people who develop blocked tear ducts.... Depending on the type of blockage, your ophthalmologist will create an entirely new route from the inside corner of your eyes to your nose, bypassing the tear drainage system altogether......Ballon catheter dilatation and stenting also an other option.... Consult Ophthalmologist for further advice.....
