Introduction: We aimed to determine the success rate of conventional massage in congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction.
Methods: 45 children attending to eye clinic with congenital nasolacriml duct obstruction initially were treated with Crigler massage as conventional procedure. We therefore evaluated the effect of the implemented massage upon one week.
Results: The overall success rate in all age groups was 84.4%, whereas it was 100% in group 1(under 8 months), %75 in group 2 (8-12 months) and 100% in gruop3 (13-24 months). One eye did not response to treatment. Congenital nasolacriml duct obstruction was more common in girls than boys and left eye involvement was more prevalent than right eye.
Conclusion: Conservative treatment of nasolacrimal duct obstruction as an conventional procedure by ophthalmologist could be an efficient outcome.
