1 doctor agrees
In brief: DCR
This is a procedure to replace a blocked tear outflow tract (into the nose) by creating a window from the eye (lacrimal) canals into the nose which bypasses the obstructed system. It is used in cases in which the normal tear flow needs re-establishment as the tears would otherwise overflow onto the cheek.
It is done by oculoplastic surgeons, an ophthalmic subspecialty.
