What it is and how it is treated

The Tear cystitis is treated endoscopically with a lachryoascorinostomy which is the  surgery for restoration of satisfactory tear drainage and thus the relief of symptoms.

With this operation communication between the lacrimal sac is restored and nose by opening a new passage in the bone.

To prevent the inflammation from spreading throughout the region around the eye, to limit his mobility, to close his eyelids or to threaten sight itself you should take care of her immediate recovery of the condition.

What is Dacryocystitis:

Inflammation of the lacrimal sac, Dacryocystitis, is a condition that worries the patient and is potentially dangerous.

It is usually created when there is a blockage of the lacrimal duct with a simultaneous infection by some microbe.

The continuous pooling of tears created by the blockage of the lacrimal duct favors the proliferation of conjunctival microbes resulting in the formation of pus.

The inflammation can spread to the entire area around the eye and limit its mobility, close the eyelids, or even threaten vision itself.


  • Intense lacrimation
  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Even fever in some cases

More specifically, tears are produced in humans by a gland, the lacrimal gland, and end up in the excretory ducts.

The tear drainage system starts at the inner corner of the eyes with two small holes called puncta. They continue into two small tubules (lacrimal tubules) that join and reach the lacrimal sac on the sides of the nose. In turn, this leads through the nasolacrimal duct to the nasal cavity (interior of the nose).
