A retrospective study of patients undergoing day-surgery external dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) over five years is presented. The patients were medically fit for day-surgery, preferred outpatient to inpatient care, and had appopriate domiciliary support. There was a high success rate with minimal morbidity, similar to findings in an inpatient setting. Patient satisfaction was uniformly high. The author believes that external DCR can be performed on a day-surgery basis safety and successfully.
