meaning drooping of the eyelids which usually occurs as a result of aging.
Besides aging, eye injury, paralysis or trauma at birth are known to be among

tear duct is blocked, which results in watery eyes. Infection is inevitable due
to microorganisms that can reproduced easily in this excessive amount of liquid
in the eye. To protect oneself against the unavoidable the blocked tear duct
should be treated with surgical procedures. Thanks to the advanced technology
it is a quick and painless surgery performed with laser through nasal septum.

moving it forward or backward. Removing the tumor usually requires a great deal
of complicated procedures and extensive surgeries.
