Question:My baby has blocked tear duct in her left eye..and that eye appears smaller than right..is it because of blocked tear duct or something else?
Answer: It could be due to the blockage that eye could be swelled and hence seem smaller. Many healthy young infants can have watery or ''mattery'' eyes. It is normal for parents to wonder if their baby has pinkeye or aneye infection. Actually, the usual cause is a small, blocked tear duct. Fortunately, it is harmless and won't affect ur baby's eyes.
A simple remeedy will fix it. Carefully clean the eyelids using a warm, wet washcloth if tears build up and leave crusts. For infants, you may try gently massaging the area 2 to 3 times a day. Using a clean finger, rub the area from the inside corner of the eye toward the nose. This may help to open the tear duct.
Hope this helps.
