    So far, i never heard that blocked tear duct cause ear infection. But tear ducts may cause some ear problems. Tears can clean the eyes and keep our eyes moist. And they are produced by tear glands all the time and flows down across the surface of the eyes. However, If you suffered from tear duct, the tears can drain out from your eyes, then it may flow down a tube into your nose or throat. It may go through into your ear and thus cause some ear problems
