What is dacryocystitis?
Dacryocystitis is an infection of the inner edge of the lower eyelid (lacrimal sac). It is usually caused by a blockage in the tear duct. It affects babies and older adults more often than other age groups.
Symptoms of dacryocystitis include pain, swelling, redness, tenderness and increased tearing in the lacrimal sac area. White, yellow or tan drainage that looks like pus may also be present. Chronic dacryocystitis may require treatment to relieve tear duct blockage.

How common is uveal coloboma?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
Uveal coloboma is a rare condition that is not always well documented. Depending on the study and where the study was conducted, estimates range from 0.5 to 2.2 cases per 10,000 births. Some cases may go unnoticed because uveal coloboma does not always affect vision or the outside appearance of the eye.
Uveal coloboma is a significant cause of blindness. Studies estimate that 5 to 10 percent of blind European children have uveal coloboma or uveal coloboma-related malformations.
