Eye Tearing & Drainage Problems at Doctor & Associates serving Fairfield County Norwalk Wilton Westport Connecticut

About Eye Tearing & Drainage Problems
Eye tearing and drainage problems can have many causes. Tearing can result from over production of tears, or inability of the normal tears to drain out of the eye through the normal drainage pathway. An abnormal positioning of the eyelids can also cause tearing, as the normal anatomy is required to direct the tears through the drainage pathway. Nerve damage is also a possible cause of tearing, as the physiologic tear pump mechanism may be impaired in those situations. Interestingly, people with dry eyes often complain of tearing. This occurs as the backup tear production system of the eye will produce an over abundance of tears in an attempt to protect an eye that seems to be drying out. Our orbital and oculofacial reconstructive plastic surgeon has extensive experience in evaluating and treating all forms of tearing, tear structure and drainage problems, She can correct an abnormally positioned eyelid, as well as open blocked tear ducts in both adults and children.
