Dacryocystitis is an infection of the lacrimal sac that sometimes leads to abscess formation. Generally, the infection is mild. Sometimes, the infection is severe and can cause fever. Sometimes a collection of pus (abscess) may form, which can rupture through the skin, creating a passage for drainage.
HOW IS DACRYOCYSTITIS DIAGNOSED?
Ophthalmologists may perform a complete physical examination of your eye and evaluate your symptoms. He or she may press the lacrimal sac to check for any discharge. If pus is discharged then the sample may be sent to the lab for analysis. A dye disappearance test may be performed to confirm diagnosis
HOW IS DACRYOCYSTITIS TREATED?
An acute infection is usually treated with an antibiotic taken orally. If a fever is present or if the infection is severe, antibiotics given by vein may be required. Applying warm compresses to the area several times a day also helps. After the acute infection resolves, doctors recommend that people have surgery to bypass the blockage so that infection does not recur. DCR is also the main treatment for chronic dacryocystitis.
