Tear duct irrigation



Tear duct irrigation

Tears are collected from the surface of the eye by tear ducts, and then they enter the tear sac and through the nasolacrimal duct are transferred into the nose. Sometimes there are obstacles in the tear outflow pathway, which results in tearing.

Problems of this type are observed in adults as well as newborn babies.

Prolonged tearing can cause disruption of the eye surface protection. To prevent this, we recommend that patients undergo a tear duct flushing procedure (irrigation).


During the procedure, the doctor will unblock the tear duct with a special probe to restore its full patency. The procedure is safe and non-invasive.

We also perform the procedure in children, taking proper care of their comfort and well-being. Parents can accompany their child during the procedure.
