If you are using artificial tears several times a day and still do not have relief, you may suffer from moderate to severe dry eye. Punctum plugs are a treatment option that can be used if needed. They are inserted into the tear duct of an eye to decrease the amount of tears that drain from your eyes and help to relieve dryness. Punctum plugs are often very small, no larger than a grain of rice.
OASIS offers a wide range of punctum plugs, including SOFT PLUG® silicone punctum plugs, which are flexible, comfortable, and dependable; and FORM FIT® plugs made of a soft, bendable material that is easily removable. Contact your eye care specialist and ask if punctum plugs would help your chronic dry eye problem when used with Oasis TEARS®.
