Hi everyone

I suspect I might have a blocked tear duct - however, there are none of the usual symptoms I have read about (teary eye/nostril, mucus, infection), although my left tear duct is larger (and more solid) than my right. I can only tell this by feeling them with my fingers, it can't be seen. Just wondering if anyone could help me out?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Cheers,
Augustgrad.

Go to a eye doctor. A local one will do, because sitting home is really going to do nothing except give you more discomfort.

Hi petery2k562, and thanks for your prmpt reply. I think your right - I should go to a doctor. However, just to clarify, it isn't causing me any discomfort at all.

Best wishes.
