Three snip procedure to treat watery eyes 
There is a small hole at the inner corner of the upper and lower eyelids called the puncta. The puncta are one of the structures responsible for collecting tears which then drain away into the nasal passages. If the puncta are too small, tears will be unable to drain away properly. This results in a watery eye which can cause discomfort and also result in soreness and irritation to the cheeks.

What is a three snip procedure?
A three snip procedure is a minor procedure on the lower puncta, to make the holes slightly larger. This allows the tears to drain away more effectively after the operation. Up to three small cuts ('snips') are made into the skin surrounding the puncta, usually on the lower eyelid. The procedure typically takes 15 - 20 minutes and no stitches are required.

We offer an all-inclusive self-pay package for three snip procedure surgery starting from £295 (terms and conditions apply).
