Subciliary Incision for DCR: External Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) is still the gold standard in the management of nasolacrimal duct obstruction, but can lead to a visible scar. Subciliary incision is widely used as an aesthetic approach in Ophthalmic plastic surgery for a wide range of orbital and eyelid surgeries. This video depicts a combination of best of two worlds: External DCR, and subciliary incision to achieve good success with a barely visible scar. The video demonstrates, that the procedure is simple, elegant, and allows all advantages of an external DCR.
