Can you see normally after a balloon dacryoplasty?

You should be able to see normally after a balloon dacryoplasty. The first few days after the procedure, your vision may still be affected as the excess tears in your lacrimal sack slowly drain off. Once this has emptied, your vision should return to normal. Your doctor will continue to monitor you for about six months after the procedure to make sure the tear duct stays open.
