Congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction is a common problem in neonates that results in epiphora, superimposed infection and amblyopia. Our aim is to review causes and current management of this problem in pediatric population. Before one year of age, conservative approach with the help of parents is preferred. Afterwards interventional approach is recommended to overcome obstruction of the nasolacrimal duct.
