Punctoplasty

Background

Punctoplasty can be performed to widen the punctal opening and to improve the drainage of tears in patients with punctal stenosis, which is an abnormal narrowing of the lacrimal punctum, oftentimes caused by inflammation.
Punctal stenosis can cause a total or relative obstruction of the drainage system of the eye, resulting in excessive epiphora.
