Dacryocystitis: An infection of the lacrimal sac, secondary to obstruction of the nasolacrimal duct at the junction of lacrimal sac.
Woke up on Friday with a swollen lower eye lid. I figured I had rubbed my eyes with dirty hands and got something in there, but it could also be the results of the lingering sinus issues from the flu I came down with over Christmas.
We were there first thing as they opened the doors at 8 am. An hour later after a very thorough examination by the superb Dr Carter and his EMT assistant we walked out with a diagnosis, a 150.00$ charge on the insurance plan and a prescription for ocular antibiotics. Can't say enough good about Dr William Carter. He really took the time to be thorough and is the first doctor I have dealt with to really listen and take the time to explain things.
