have you already had a DCR surgery? how has this been determined to be the correct procedure?
the surgery is a lot like a DCR, obviously it is in the same region under same sedation protocol. The inly difference is that a small test tube like tube that is open on both ends is inserted instead of a silicone tube. Also, the silicone tube goes through upper and lower lid (usually) and stays in place and is later cut out. The glass only goes through the lower lid (in the corner really) and is functional shortly after (not when the tube is cut as in silicone). The glass tube basically is a open passage between the nasal cavity and the lid and takes the tears away to reduce runnning. I think that is about it, Regards XXXXX XXXXX
