Answer

Consider consultation with an ophthalmologist, otolaryngologist, or neurosurgeon for any patient who may have orbital involvement.

Most cases of lacrimal system infection can be managed conservatively. Consultation with an ophthalmologist or otolaryngologist is indicated if the condition is not resolved within 24-48 hours.
