Dr. Ira Vidor answered

Specializes in Ophthalmology

Dacryocystorhinostomy (dcr) is the standard treatment. This is an outpatient surgery done under anesthesia. It can be performed through an external incision (generally considered to have the highest success rate) or endoscopically. Often, a temporary stent is placed at the time of surgery. Rarely, a jones tube may be needed as well. Recovery is typcially a week or two.
