PUNCTUM PLUGS

PUNCTUM PLUGS

WHAT ARE PUNCTAL OCCLUDERS?

Punctal occluders block the punctum (tear duct), which is the drainage duct that carries tears away from the surface of the eye. By blocking these, tears are prevented from draining away too quickly leaving the eye dry. This procedure is widely-performed, safe, quick, painless, and totally reversible.
