Some children may present a tear overflow in an eye (very rarely does it happen in both) which appears in
the first few days of life and may last several months or years.
It is frequently accompanied by a while or yellowish secretion and it gets more intense when the child is taken outdoors.
Often infants are born with obstructed tear ducts due to a mucous residue at the end of the duct which is supposed to drain tears to the nose.
The child is followed by a highly specialized team with experience in operating on children, which ensures the utmost sensitivity and attention from the initial stage before the operation to leaving the hospital
The operation does not foresee any surgical incision from outside, therefore does not leave any scars.
The probing of lacrimal ducts allows to overcome the constant tear overflow problem with secretions afflicting a child.
The reinstatement of the tear drainage system reduced the risk of bacterial conjunctivitis and allows easy opening of both eyes, important for the child’s well-being.
