受感染的撕开管道,或dacryocystitis, is an inflammation of the tear drainage system in one or both eyes that cause excessive tearing, and sometimes redness and discharge despite there being no presence of allergies, cold, or other concerns. This can happen to people at any age, but it is most typically observed in babies.

What Causes Infected Tear Ducts?

在成人中,撕开管道被阻止时感染,有时是由于周围骨骼的自然生长模式。它们的生长可能会缩小撕开管道,导致阻塞,这使得细菌可以收集和逐渐生长。

许多婴儿出生在撕裂管中的膜,可能无法打开,或者太狭窄,无法允许泪水通过。这并不罕见,在大多数情况下,在1年龄1中将解决。然而,如果它持续超过1岁,则可以进行次要的,通常无痛的外科手术以打开管道。

感染撕裂管道的症状

Aside from observing the typical redness, swelling, and excess tearing present with infected tear ducts, an eye care professional can run other tests to pinpoint the disorder. These include pressing near the sinus area for discharge through the tear ducts, as well as dye tests, where colored fluid is run through the tear ducts to see if they are clear.

感染撕裂管道的症状may include:

  • Eye and eyelid redness
  • 眼睛炎症
  • Excess tearing
  • 眼睛排放
  • Fever

治疗感染撕裂管道

In most cases, oral antibiotics are the treatment of choice for infected tear ducts. They are fast and effective, usually clearing the infection up in a matter of days. In some cases where infections don’t respond to antibiotics, surgery may be recommended to clear the tear ducts, or remove surrounding bones that may be causing the tear ducts to be too narrow.
