Setup for Nasal Endoscopy and Endoscopic Surgery



Nasal examination should be obligatory in any patient who is being considered for lacrimal surgery. Preoperative assessment should include nasal endoscopy to allow evaluation of any concurrent intranasal pathology or anatomical variations. Furthermore, lacrimal surgery itself is now widely practiced via an endoscopic approach and therefore ophthalmologists performing lacrimal surgery should familiarize themselves with the use of nasal endoscopes.
