According to Dr Ong, the signs and symptoms of a blocked tear duct include excessive tearing, redness of the white part of the eye, recurrent eye infection or inflammation, painful swelling near the inside corner of the eye, crusting (formation of a hard, outer layer) of the eyelids, and mucous or pus discharge from the lids and surface of the eye. An ophthalmologist will be able to diagnose a blocked tear duct, and the treatment options will depend on the level of the obstruction and the severity of the tear duct blockage. The treatment options are external dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) surgery, endoscopic DCR surgery, stenting or intubation, and dilation and flushing of the tear ducts. Treatment is usually successful more than 90% of the time.

鼻泪道阻塞可透过手术治疗,包括鼻泪道支架植入术(STENT)及鼻腔泪囊造口术(Dacryocystorhinostomy,简称DCR)。STENT手术是以细微显微镜从泪囊进入鼻腔内膜间,确定鼻泪道阻塞的位置及部份,并以空心泪道探针经泪小点、泪小管及鼻泪道探入下鼻道。另一项手术--鼻腔泪囊造口术,这项手术是技巧性地在泪囊与鼻腔黏膜间建立一个通道,提供泪水另一个排放的出口,也意味着患者有了全新的鼻泪道。
