Dacryocystitis Tear Duct And Sac Eye Infection

Dacryocystitis is an infection of the tear drainage system. Tears are normally made by the lacrimal gland under the upper eyelid and drain out through a system of ducts to the lacrimal sac and out into the nose. If there is a blockage in this drainage system, tears cannot drain out properly, allowing bacteria to grow in the ducts or lacrimal sac and cause dacryocystitis. Such blockages of the tear drainage system may be due to aging, injury, sinus disease, inflammatory diseases, or scarring from previous episodes of dacryocystitis. In severe cases, the infection can spread to the surrounding skin and other areas of the face or orbit.

Symptoms You May Experience:
