A surgical procedure to create an alternative tear in patients with blocked tear ducts. It aims to eliminate mucus and fluid buildup in the lacrimal sac and expand the tear drainage to relieve the epiphora. The operation involves removing the bone close to the nasolacrimal sac and integrating the lacrimal sac with the nasal mucosa to bypass the nasolacrimal duct blockage.
