Prognosis of Lacrimal System Diseases

Reading time: 1 min

Surgical treatments tend to have satisfactory results in the majority of patients. The success rate after punctoplasty is higher than 90%, and is between 85% and 90% in cases of DCR surgery. The success rate of DCR laser surgery is lower, so for this reason we do not perform this technique at our centre.

Complications following these procedures are extremely rare, although surgery may not work in about 10% of cases, requiring re-operation.
