Blocked Tear Ducts and Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) Surgery

Play Video

What is a blocked tear duct and how is it treated?

When you blink, a tear film spreads over the eye making the surface smooth and clear. The tear film is made up of three distinct layers. An oily layer, a watery layer and a mucous layer. Each layer is needed for the tear film to keep our eyes moist.

Tears protect the eyes and keep them moist and healthy. Tears come from the conjunctiva which is the clear tissue over the white of the eye, and from the lacrimal glands. These glands are located above each eye. The tears flow across the surface of your eye and drain through tiny holes called puncta. Puncta are in the corners of your upper and lower eyelids near the nose. The tears then travel through tiny passages in the eyelids. They eventually go into the nasal lacrimal duct before emptying into your nose; this is why your nose runs when you cry. When the tear drainage system is either partly or completely blocked, tears cannot drain normally. The eye becomes watery and irritated it can also be constantly infected.

A blocked tear duct can be due to:
  • Age
  • Injury
  • Infection
There are many treatment options for blocked tear ducts including:
  • Antibiotics
  • Massage
  • Tear Duct Probing and Flushing
  • Balloon Catheter Dilation
  • Stenting and Intubation
  • External and Endoscopic DCR

DCR Options for Blocked Tear Ducts

Commonly performed to treat blocked tear ducts, Community Eye Center offers dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR)  surgery options. DCR is a procedure which opens the passageway for tears to drain properly out of the nose again. Patients are provided with general anesthesia or local anesthesia if the procedure is performed in an outpatient setting.

External Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR)

External DCR is surgery that creates a new pathway for tears to drain from the eye when the tear duct is blocked. The surgeon will make a small incision near the inside corner of the eye. He or she will then create a new opening directly from the eye’s lacrimal sack into the nasal cavity to allow tears to drain. A surgical adhesive or stitches are used to close the incision and a tubelike stent may be used temporarily to keep the new drain from closing up while healing. The tube can be removed later in the physician’s office or outpatient surgery center.

Endoscopic Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR)

Endoscopic DCR surgically creates a new pathway for tears to drain from the eye when the tear duct is blocked. The surgeon will insert a slender tube called an endoscope into your nasal cavity. He or she will then create a new opening directly from the eyes lacrimal sack into the nasal cavity to allow tears to drain. A flexible tube called a stent may be put in place temporarily to keep the new drain from closing up while healing. The tube can be removed later in the physician’s office or outpatient surgery center.

Community Eye Center offers treatment options for blocked tear ducts, including External and Endoscopic Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR).

Entropion & Ectropion Repair

Entropion Repair

 

What is entropion and how is it repaired? 

With entropion, the eyelashes and skin of the eyelid turn into the eye; they rub against the cornea causing pain and irritation.

To repair an eyelid with entropion the eye surgeon will make an incision at the outer corner of the eyelid and along the eyelashes; sometimes the incision is made on the inside of the eyelid. Then, the surgeon will tighten the tendons that hold the eyelid in the correct position.

If entropion is caused by caused by scars or prior surgery, the eye surgeon may graft or surgically place a small amount of tissue from another area of the body; this helps lessen the pull on the eyelid caused by the scar and repositions the eyelid. This should help the skin and eyelashes from irritating the cornea.

Ectropion Repair

 

What is ectropion and how is it repaired? 

With ectropion, the lining of the inner eyelid is exposed. Tears do not drain properly from the eye leading to tearing and discomfort.

To repair ectropion the eye surgeon may tighten the tendons that normally hold the eyelid in the correct position. He or she may also remove a tiny piece of eyelid tissue to bring the lid back toward the eyeball.

If ectropion is caused by scars or prior surgery, a skin graft or place tissue from another part of the body may be used to relieve the tension caused by the scar and help reposition the eyelid. After surgery, the incisions made in the eyelid are closed with stitches or surgical adhesive.

This procedure is done for both cosmetic and functional reasons. While it can improve appearances, it is also done to improve sight for those whose eyelids sag and get in the way of their vision.

Often, an eyelift is performed along with other procedures such as laser resurfacing, filler injections or forehead lifts.

Eyelift surgery is a relatively short, outpatient procedure. It is among the most common cosmetic surgical procedures performed in the US, and is the most common to improve the effects of aging of the eyes and face.

Dr. Mishra offers eyelid surgery as well as many other surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures at Community Eye Center. He has successfully performed blepharoplasty thousands of times, and is currently accepting new patients.

5 Facts- Functional Blepharoplasty

Play Video

5 Facts- Functional Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is the formal name that describes eyelid surgery (sometimes also called eye-lift surgery). Eyelid surgery may be performed to remove excess skin from the upper eyelids and to reduce bagginess from lower eyelids. Often thought of as a cosmetic procedure to enhance a person’s appearance, a person may elect to have eyelid surgery to improve heavy and droopy eyelids for other functional reasons. Below, you will find 5 facts about this type of eyelid procedure.

1. Functional eyelid surgery can be required to preserve vision and wellbeing.

Functional eyelid surgery is done to remove loose or drooping skin if it impairs vision or presents a problem such as wearing glasses or contact lenses. This procedure is also done if irritation occurs from excess folds of eyelid skin rubbing or discomfort occurs from overuse of forehead muscles straining to lift sagging skin.

2. An oculoplastic surgeon is desirable for functional eyelid surgery.

Most often performed by ophthalmologists or oculoplastic surgeons like Dr. Mishra with Community Eye Center, surgeons performing eyelid surgery must be knowledgeable about the ocular structure as well as the effects of the operation. Additionally, the provider of this procedure should be highly-skilled in fine suturing, as a delicate and precise touch can translate into exceptional results.

3. Blepharoplasty is an outpatient procedure.

Eyelid surgery is a relatively short, outpatient procedure. It is among the most common cosmetic surgical procedures performed in the US and is the most common to improve the effects of aging of the eyes and face.

4. Most insurance plans often cover functional blepharoplasty.

Many private health insurance plans will cover the cost of functional eyelid surgery; this procedure may also be covered under Medicare.

Some may choose to have other procedures at the same time

Blepharoplasty may happen along with other procedures such as laser resurfacing, filler injections or forehead lifts.

5. Age is not the only reason for functional blepharoplasty.

Many who consider this surgery are over the age of 35; however, in cases when baggy and/or droopy eyelids are hereditary, younger candidates also consider this surgery.

If you think that you have a need for functional blepharoplasty, Dr. Mishra at Community Eye Center can perform an examination and testing to determine if you qualify. Call +1-941-625-1325 or book an appointment online today.
