There can also be an infection in the lacrimal sac (acute dacryocystitis) as a result of the blocked tear duct which causes red, painful swelling at the corner of the eye. These problems are treated by a procedure called Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR). In this a new passage is made between the lacrimal sac and the nose and this bypasses any blockage below the lacrimal sac and allows tears to drain normally again.
