tear ducts or nasolacrimal duct. When these ducts are blocked out in one or both eyes, the eye becomes moist and watery.

There exist many opening ways for opening blocked tear ducts, where the doctor determine which one is best for the patient like anastomosis tears bag to the nose.
In the first type of blocked tear ducts surgeries, the doctor opens a new channel through the bone to reach the nose in order to let the eye unload the tears.
