The Primary Causes of Tearing Disorders

Tearing disorders can be a very troublesome issue. Tearing disorders can make it seem like you cry frequently or cry at odd times. The constant tears in your eyes can also blur your vision and irritate the skin that surrounds your eyes.

The main causes of tearing disorders are an issue with the tear-drainage (nasolacrimal) system, the overproduction of tears, or a combination of the two issues.

There are effective treatment options for addressing the overproduction of tears and the improper drainage of tears. Oculofacial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Gregory Lewen will need to carefully examine the eyes in order to determine what the appropriate treatment option will be.

If you are suffering from a tearing disorder, please contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lewen. He can provide you with the professional medical care you need.
