What Is Dacryocystitis (Tear Duct Infection)?
Dacryocystitis refers to an infection of the tear sacs, which are part of the tear drainage system in the eye. Tears drain from each eye through small canals (drainage canals), a tear sac, and a tear duct. Drainage canals are found at the inner corner of each upper and lower eyelid, and they carry away tears that have rinsed the front surface of the eye. These canals empty into the tear sac, also known as the lacrimal sacs, through which tears move into the tear duct (nasolacrimal duct) and then into the nose.
