Tears coming out of the eye continuously

Hi, my mother earlier had lots of tears coming from her left eye. I consulted the doctors and they told that its due to the blocking of the passage in the nose. They did the surgery at the left side of the nose just below the eye. But she didn t get cured. Also that wound is not healing and she is getting a lot of pain in the left side of her face. I have decided to come CMC. Please give me some suggestion. I am very much worried. ThanX

cause of tearing coming from eye as it is rightly diagnosed by your doctor and rightly operated for.
but still she is not cured as there is infection took place and due to infection and swelling again duct taking tears is again blocked.
take advice of your attending doctor,one course of antibiotic,anti inflammatory medicines will give cure of problem.
sometimes re opening of lachrymal duct may require.

I do agree with Dr Tauseef. As he said ur mother is suffering from Nasolacrimal Duct Blockage. there are 2 ways to operate it
1. exteernal approach -- by opthalmologist
2. endocopic approach -- by ENT surgeon
As u said "wound is not healing"-- get her daibetic and renal profile checked up also

Hi Prabhu, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Your Mother is suffering from Epiphora as a result of Nasolacrimal Duct Blockage. In adults it could be due to Infection, Injury or Tumor. Until the cause is treated the symptoms will persist.
Take her to Ophthalmologist so that he can examine her eye and suggest Eye exam, Special fluorescein stain testing to see how tears drain and X-ray studies to examine the tear duct. The exact cause has to be ruled out. You can do some gentle massaging over the area twice or thrice daily. Using a clean finger, rub the area from the inside corner of the eye toward the nose. This may help to open the tear duct. Tear duct blockage may increase the risk of eye infections. She may need antibiotic eye drops.

Good Luck.
