Punctal Plugs

What Are Punctal Plugs and How Can They Help Relieve Dry Eye Disease?


Punctal Plugs, also known as punctum or lacrimal plugs are tiny biocompatible devices that are inserted into the tear duct to block drainage. By blocking the tear duct, tears are prevented from draining away too quickly. This ultimately increases the eye’s tear film and surface moisture to relieve dry eyes. This procedure is widely-performed, safe, quick, painless, and totally reversible.

I-MED Pharma carries the widest variety of punctal plugs in Canada. They are available in permanent, semi-permanent and temporary options and come in a variety of materials and sizes. Find the one that is best suited to your patients’ needs.
