Tear Duct Reconstruction (tearing)

Tearing involves the excess production or insufficient drainage of tears which leads to overflow. This problem can be extremely frustrating for patients and often leads to irritation of the skin and serious infections. Excess production of tears is typically caused by dry eyes, allergies, or anything that irritates the eye. Problems involving the tear drainage system can lead to inadequate tear drainage. There are several different structures that make up the tear drainage system and narrowing or blockage of any of these structures can lead to tearing. Dr. Scruggs can thoroughly evaluate your tearing and determine the cause and best treatment.
