The investigation of epiphora

Can J Ophthalmol. 1977 Jul;12(3):196-8.


The investigation and management of a patient with a tearing problem demands evaluation of the lacrimal passages by syringing and intubation macrodacryocystography with subtraction prints. Data regarding function can be provided by a nuclear lacrimal scan and computer assisted scintillography. We describe our experience with 163 patients.
