Massage blocked tear duct

I like families to massage the tear duct with 10 downward strokes.  I like to have the families do this about 4 times a day.  95% of babies will outgrow this problem by 9 months of age.  If the baby does not outgrow a blocked tear duct by 9 months of age, Dr. Oshiro likes to refer the baby to a pediatric ophthalmologist.  The ophthalmologist will typically recommend a surgery to open up the tear duct.
