Abstract

Nasolacrimal duct obstruction is a common cause of chronic epiphora and may frequently lead to mucopurulent ocular discharges, chronic dacryocystitis, and acute dacryocystitis. External dacryocystorhinostomy is a standard surgery in which a new passageway is established to bypass the occluded or narrowed nasolacrimal duct for the tear drainage.
