Lacrimal System Disorders Reston



The nasolacrimal system describes the system that drains tears from the eyes. Tears are naturally produced in the lacrimal gland and drained through a piping system that starts in the corner of the eye and ends at the nose.

Any disruption of the drainage system can lead to tearing. Although may be caused by a number of factors, tearing due to a lacrimal system disorder generally requires surgical correction.

To determine the cause of tearing, a thorough examination of the eyes and drainage system is required, which is done in the office.
