Tears are very important to your eyes: they provide lubrication and protect your eyes from foreign debris. If your eyes do not produce tears properly, you may have a blocked tear duct.
Crusting of the eye
Infection in the tear duct
During tear duct surgery, the clogged tear duct is bypassed by making a new drainage canal into the nose. A small tube is placed in this canal for several months to keep it open. The surgery typically takes 45 minutes.
