Dry Eye Treatment with Punctal Plugs

Punctal plugs are tiny devices that are placed in the tear ducts of the eyes to stop tears from draining.

Also known as puncta, tear ducts are the tiny openings that drain tears from your eyes. Punctal plugs are about the size of a grain of rice, and are designed to plug the tear duct to stop fluid from leaving the surface of the eye. The plugs are inserted in the puncta of the upper or lower eyelids, or in both. Some punctal plugs are temporary, and dissolve over time. Other plugs are semi-permanent, designed to remain in the eye long-term until removed by your eye doctor.

Punctal plugs help to keep the eye moist and comfortable, relieving itchy, burning and red eyes.
