Top - the appearance 6 weeks following External Dacryocystorhinostomy. Bottom - The black line marks where the skin incision was made. The arrow points to the lacrimal stent that can just be made out running from the upper canaliculus to the lower canaliculus. The wound has healed well and is hardly visible.

Top - Before left Endonasal Dacryocystorhinostomy surgery. The tear film has been stained with yellow fluorescein dye. It is markedly raised demonstrating the lack of tear drainage. Bottom - Following surgery to the left. The tear film is normal and the lacrimal stent can just be seen in the corner of the eye running from the upper to lower canaliculus.
