Epiphora (Tearing Eye)

Epiphora (Tearing Eye)

Tearing eye may be caused by obstruction of the drainage pathway of the tearing system (lacrimal system), which is located inside the nose. An ophthalmologist will diagnose and determine the cause of tearing eye. If obstruction of the tearing system is determined to be the cause of epiphora, the patient is a good candidate for endoscopic lacrimal sac surgery.
