LACRIMAL IRRIGATION & PROBING

seperator

Probing and irrigation are used to determine the anatomy and function of the lacrimal drainage system. Generally, it is a safe and comfortable procedure that provides extremely useful diagnostic information and assists surgical planning, especially in cases of pathology.

At Face Restoration, we understand the discomfort and embarrassment caused by wet and watery eye and aim to treat you as soon as possible. Our award-winning ophthalmic and oculoplastic surgeons will safely take care of everything from consultation and diagnosis to treatment and post-op care.

WHY FACE RESTORATION?

FEATURES, ADVANTAGES, & BENEFITS FOR OUR PATIENTS

When treating any tear duct dysfunction, it is important to get a clear picture so that we can manage your treatment as effectively as possible. At FaceRestoration, we have diagnostic imaging facilities available so that you can get an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

A computed tomography (CT) scan or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan is helpful in locating inflammation and enlargement of soft tissue and muscles.

At FaceRestoration, you can expect to see two ophthalmic and oculoplastic surgeons who will consult you throughout your time under our care. Having two consultants means an in-built second opinion when diagnosing and planning treatments, as well as increased capacity during your post-operative care.

Who is affected by watery eyes?

Epiphora or watery eyes can occur at any age but is most common in the very young or the elderly.

How does lacrimal irrigation and probing help?

Not only does irrigation and probing help to achieve a proper diagnosis, for blocked tear ducts, it can help to flush out any temporary blockages they may be causing your symptoms.

What other treatments are available?

It is important to ensure that we have identified the root cause of your watery eyes, before recommending the appropriate treatment. Common surgical treatments for wet and watery eyes are Punctoplasty & Canaliculoplasty & Stent Placement and Endonasal DCR & External DCR. We will be able to advise on the most appropriate treatment after your consultation.
