As a 47-year-old adult, I have suffered with blocked tear ducts for many years. The opthamologist inserts an arc-shaped needle into the tear duct and squirts a solution in. When I feel the liquid at the back of my throat, the block is cleared. However, they start to block up again within a month or so after clearing. What can I do to prevent them from blocking so frequently.
