    Hi All,

    Any body here had any experience with blocked tear ducts? I have a long standing problem with watery eyes and this is the latest finding.

    Eye cataract surgeries in both eyes as well as other procedures.

    Thanks

    I had a tear duct blockage in one eye about 30 years ago. It was a very simple surgery preformed in the eye doctor office. He placed a very small syringe in the tear duct and asked me to let him know when I could feel the liquid run down my throat . It was a piece of cake.
    Don't hesitate having it done.
    Good luck

    I should have mentioned that this procedure should be done by a M.D or D.O.

    Nzombro thank you so much,

    I have an ophthalmologist who did my cataracts and other surgeries of which I have had five. My watery eyes have become a vision problem from the point of view that I have to rub them to clear them; introducing dirt into my eyes and further irritation, the worst is when I am driving. Over the past five years I have tried numerous drops and ointments to no avail. I don’t think this is dry eye syndrome or TMS related. The doctor check my ducts at my last visit with a colored solution and said they were indeed both blocked. I see him next week and will discuss this further.

    Thank you for your answer, it was helpful.
