CONCLUSION

Blocked Tear Ducts

A relatively common problem in newborns that affects the external eye is watering of usually one eye, and possible concurrent mucus secretions due to infection. The cause is a delay in the development of the tear duct that drains the tears from the inner corner of the eye into the nostril of the same side. Refer to the following link for further details on the treatment of this condition.

One should particularly follow the instruction given in this link for massaging of the inner corner of the eye. This helps to open the duct, allowing the tears to flow into the nostril.
