TEAR DUCT BLOCKAGES
BETHESDA | WASHINGTON DC | FAIRFAX | HAYMARKET

Once tears are produced they must be drained.When our tears are produced normally, each blink our eyelids will provide a pumping mechanism, moving our tears into a complex drainage system within our lids and nose, ultimately emptying into the back of our throats.The smallest compromise of this system in the form of blockage and/or inflammation can result in debilitating tearing and possible infection. With their expertise in this area. Dr. Perman has evaluated tearing of all etiologies in all age groups.

If surgery in indicated, we will tailor a treatment specifically to your problem. This surgery can be performed on an outpatient basis in our Federally-approved ambulatory surgery center. Anesthesia is provided by John Hopkins/Sibley Hospital anesthesia staff.
