Summary

In this procedure, the provider dilates the lacrimal punctum, an opening that drains tears from the conjunctival sac into the lacrimal duct in the eye. He may or may not perform an irrigation of the punctum. This procedure treats an injury, blockage, or punctal stenosis in which the punctal opening narrows from inflammation causing epiphoria, or the overflow of tears onto the face.
