If you have frequent or constant excess tearing, Dr. Levin provides an evaluation and lacrimal surgery to help correct this problem. Schedule a consultation at her Westport office to discuss your available options.
What Causes Excessive Tearing?
Excessive tearing can result from an imbalance between tear production and tear drainage. Excess tear production often results from dry eye or unhealthy tear film. Insufficient drainage may be from abnormal tear duct position or narrowing or obstruction along the lacrimal drainage pathway, starting from the eyelid and ending in the nose.
