DCR (Dacryocystorhinostomy)

DCR (Dacryocystorhinostomy)

This is an endoscopic procedure, which treats epiphora (tearing eye) without cuts to the face. When part of the lacrimal system is blocked, this procedure is used to restore the flow of the tears into the nose from the lacrimal sac. During the procedure, a new drainage pathway is created inside the nose so the tears can bypass the obstructed area.
