PURPOSE: To evaluate the absorbed radiation dose to the lens of the eye, which is the critical organ in the primary beam during fluoroscopically guided transluminal balloon dilation of the lacrimal drainage system (balloon dacryocystoplasty) for obstructive epiphora and to evaluate the possibility of deterministic radiation effect on the lens.
