Hi @lilllese1967, welcome to Connect. I'm glad to hear that so far so good with the results of your surgery. I did a quick search to try and find other members who had had dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) surgery, but didn't find any (yet). However, I bet @fancyrph and @ryman will be interested in learning from your experience.

Lilllese, was your dry eye condition caused by blocked tear ducts?

Hi ,
Cronic Dry eyes as than after 2 years of using drops , steroids and restatious. Nothing was going to help , so this was the next option . Had few Dr.s here where I live , but never once mention blocked tears ducts or having this done.
As no one hete did this as well .
So we went to Mayo to have a 3rd oppinion . And tried few things and new plugs were not the answer . As a DCR was the option , so we decided it was gonna be worth it . And we new we were in great hands through Mayo surgerns etc…
As they saved my husband 5 years ago . In a very serious life situation.
So yes all came down to a DCR surgery .
