Haemlacria is a rare condition which is not widely mentioned in literature. In this mini case series, we describe two cases with this presentation. Both the patients were women with unilateral presentation of haemlacria in the right eye. Case one was diagnosed with photosensitivity, while case two was assumed to be due to an undiagnosed systemic illness which led to her mortality. Careful history, systemic examination, slit- lamp biomicroscopy, fundus examination, relevant haematological tests like coagulation profile, liver function test along with nasolacrimal duct probing with syringing and appropriate imaging may be needed to arrive at a diagno sis. Though many cases are idiopathic yet this can be a sign of an underlying life-threatening disease.
