Purpose: To evaluate the results of lacrinal probing for the first time in the age above 15 months. Methods: We studied the hospital records of 158 eligible patients with epiphora or mucopurulent discharge who underwent probing for the first time.Results: Mean age was 3±4.2 years; 47% were male and 53% were female. In 78% of the cases unilateral probing and in 22% bilateral probing was required. Overall in 75% of cases, probing was successful. The success rate was 72% in unilateral and 82% in bilateral cases. Success rate was not related to age.Conclusion: Probing of the lacrimal duct can be successful in congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction even in higher age groups and if a patient with epiphora is referred for the first time at older ages, it is better to do probing as the first line of treatment; silicone intubation or DCR must be preserved only for failed cases.
