Minnesota Blocked Tear Duct Attorney

Because many eye injuries can result in a permanent loss of vision, they need to be treated as an emergency.  The skull’s bone structure is designed to protect the eyes, but the eyes can sustain a secondary injury in certain cases.  For example, if you break your nose, the eye’s draining system may be injured however you may not notice for weeks or even months.

Blocked Tear Duct

When the nasolacrimal duct, located in your nose, is obstructed, it results in a blocked tear duct.  This prohibits you from producing any tears because the draining system for the tears is blocked.

The tear duct can scar from a past nose injury and the scar tissue can block the duct completely, preventing the tears from draining.  An infection can occur in the eyelid and conjunctiva and your vision can be compromised if the situation is not rectified.

Surgery is recommended for adults suffering from blocked tear ducts.  A surgeon will perform a dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR), creating a new opening.  Complications from the surgery can result in:

  • infection
  • bleeding
  • allergic reaction to anesthesia
