Laser Treatment For Eye Tear Duct Obstruction ( DCR )
Under our eyes in orbit above the eyebrows at the outer edges of
the tear glands are moistened with a fluid secreted. This fluid
breaks down and the front of the eye, dry eye agents in preventing
both nourishes and protects the front side. After seeing the
process of tear fluid from the nose into the Channel and then tear
flows in our throats. This process is repeated continuously during
the day. Lacrimal duct obstruction is present if the fluid flows
outward from the channel. Watering eyes and ocular discharge
occurs. Channels in the lacrimal sac infection, swollen shutdowns.
Eye swelling and nasal sac can be easily seen from outside.
Patients continuously throughout the day without tearing, ocular
discharge, pain and redness suffer from.
Symptoms of Lacrimal Duct Obstruction:
• Excessive tear
• Frequent ocular discharge
• When nasal root is pressed, inflammation comes to the eye
• Swelling of the nose root.
Tear Duct Surgery with Diode Laser
Diode Laser DCR method in laser eyelid punctum probe name enters
the holes, we tear, tear sac, and passes the closed sac between the
bone using a Laser Diode open road. Therefore there is no stitching
process. Endoscope through the nose at the same time, this
procedure is followed. Sufficient size to be opened when it reaches
the size of the channel that the process is ended.
Advantages of Diode Laser DCR Surgery over Other Lachrymal Duct
Lachrymal duct surgery with Diode Laser is performed without blood,
without any trace in a short time.
- The most important advantage of Diode Laser surgery over other
methods is the realization of the surgery in a short time as 8-10
- Almost there is no bleeding.
- Because of the property of Diode laser, almost there is no tissue
injury at the surgery.
- Healing time is quick. Patient can leave the hospital after
surgery. The next day after Diode laser operation, patient can
return to the social life again.
- No cut on the skin and no damage of muscles around the lachrymal
sac are the other advantages.
- To the patients formerly had lachrymal duct operation, second
operation with “Diode Laser” provides more success than other
- In treatment with Diode laser all operations can be detected inside
the nose with endoscopy. It is possible to interfere if necessary.
