The first step in determining whether you need tear duct revision surgery is to figure out whether you have a blocked tear duct. Symptoms of a blocked tear duct include:

  • Inflammation of the tear duct and eye
  • Tenderness and swelling in the skin around the tear duct
  • Frequent eye infections
  • Mucus discharge from the eye
  • Blurred vision
  • Tears tinged with blood
  • Persistent fever
  • Crusty eyelashes

Next, you should determine whether there are alternatives to surgery. Tear duct revision surgery is a big step and should not be taken lightly. Your doctor at The Morgenstern Center can help you figure out whether antibiotic drops, dilation, intubation, or "flushing" of the eyes can resolve the problem.
