Punctal Plugs

Punctal plugs are a type of dry eye treatment. Intended to keep the surface of the eye moisturized for a longer period of time, punctal plugs relieve dry, irritated eyes and restore comfort. Puncta are openings in the eye that drain tears. Through a minimally-invasive procedure, our doctors plug these drains using tiny devices which can be temporary and dissolve over time or semi-permanent and removed later. If you suffer from dry eye and have found little to no relief with artificial tear drops, reach out to our team to see if punctal plugs may be right for you.
