    you can massage and pulse gently from the inner corner of the eye down and across to the bridge of the nose, which has an effect of stimulating the duct and breaking up the blockage. Also, you can apply hot compress over the eyes for 10 to 15 minutes. You can take advantage of the towel dampened with warm water at home, which is convenient.
