Abstract

Canalicular lacerations need to be correctly identified before surgical repair. Methods to find the medial cut end are numerous. With the use of direct sight or the bubble test or both, the identification and repair of the medial cut end of the lacerated canaliculus should be achievable in the majority of cases.
