General information on Nasolacrimal Occlusion
Nasolacrimal occlusion is a condition in which there is a blockage in the tear draining system. This blockage causes an overflow of tears which, in turn, cause discharge to come out of the eye. Should the discharge produced not be accompanied by redness of the eye, then it is most likely that the cause of the discharge is that of nasolacrimal occlusion. Should the discharge produced be accompanied by redness of the eye, then it is most likely that the cause of the discharge is not nasolacrimal occlusion, but of some other condition. The primary cause of nasolacrimal occlusion is scarring from injuries which cause the blockage of the tear draining system. In other instances the cause of the nasolacrimal occlusion is that the affected cat is born with this condition, the tear draining system has been clogged with dirt, or the affected cat has suffered chronic infections around the area of the tear draining system.
Symptoms of Nasolacrimal Occlusion
Some of the symptoms of nasolacrimal occlusion may be: an overflow of tears from the eye, discharge from the eye that is not accompanied by redness of the eye, and infections of the eye.
Treatments for Nasolacrimal Occlusion
The treatment for nasolacrimal occlusion is dependent on the underlying cause of the condition in the first place. Should the underlying cause of the nasolacrimal occlusion be from scarring of the eyelids or if the affected cat was born with the condition, then there is no treatment. Should the underlying cause of the nasolacrimal occlusion be infections or blockage from dirt, then the treatment is to flush the eye with antibiotics. A veterinarian can determine the underlying cause and the course of action that is to be taken as far as treatment.
