While tearing patients have similar complaints, the etiology of their symptoms may vary widely and thus require a meticulous evaluation. A thorough history followed by systematic examination of the lids, ocular surface, anterior segment, and lacrimal system will lead the clinician to the proper diagnosis. Treatment options for lacrimal obstruction are varied and as surgical techniques continue to evolve, new studies are indicated to determine the approaches that provide the most successful outcomes while ensuring patient safety.
