Abstract

Congenital nasolacrimal duct obstructions may present with mucoid discharge, epiphora, or lacrimal swelling, and is most commonly located at the distal end of the nasolacrimal duct. Nasolacrimal duct probing may be performed to treat an obstruction after conservative measures have failed. Patients should be educated about the risks and benefits of the procedure, including alternatives.
