Abstract

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Current opinions and trends in the management of upper lacrimal obstruction include design variations on the original Lester Jones tube and updated awareness and management of the problems associated with the tubes. This article includes a brief review of the fascinating history of the development of the Jones tube, which sets the perspective for the current scientific dialog. RECENT FINDINGS: SUMMARY: Conjunctivodacryocystorhinostomy with placement of a Jones tube remains the gold standard for management of upper lacrimal obstruction. This article provides an updated perspective on issues with extrusion or migration of the tube, bothersome retrograde airflow with the use of a continuous positive airway pressure device, and management of crusting and possible infectious biofilms on the tube.
