Abstract

Dacryocystorhinostomy is an effective treatment for nasolacrimal duct obstruction. Most techniques employ a conventional blade or knife in making the incision of the nasal mucosa and lacrimal sac. The authors describe the use of a phacoemulsification crescent knife for this purpose. This technique can be effective and at the same time safer and easier to perform.
