This patient had a blockage of his right tear duct system (nasolacrimal duct obstruction). He underwent a tear duct reconstructive surgery to help his tears drain better. The procedure he had was a dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) surgery. An external DCR was performed in the right eyelid. A small incision was made near where the eyelid meets the nose. The post operative photograph was taken 4 months after surgery, and there is no visible scar noticeable.
Preoperative diagnosis: Right nasolacrimal duct obstruction.
Procedure performed:Right dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) surgery.
