The authors describe a novel technique that facilitates retrieval of lacrimal probes from the nasal fossa during silicone intubation of the lacrimal drainage system in children. Gauze preplaced in the nasal fossa is used to retrieve the lacrimal intubation probes with no need for visual or mechanical identification of the probe intranasally.
