To introduce a simple and effective repositioning method of prolapsed silicone tube after nasolacrimal duct intubation at the outpationt.
We studied 34 cases of prolapsed silicone tubes. Each silicone tube was repositioned by inserting a probe, which was followed by the tube, into canaliculus until it reached nasolacrimal duct.
All the prolapsed silicone tubes were successfully repositioned without any significant complication.
This is a simple and good method that can be performed as an outpatient procedure in the case of prolapsed silicone tube after intubation as a treatment of nasolacrimal duct obstruction.
