No one likes dry, irritated eyes. While eye drops can go a long way when dealing with dry eyes, sometimes this may not be enough. We specialize in punctal occlusions, which can be an ideal solution to a dry eye problem. The punctum serves as a drain for the eye—a small hole through which the moisture in the eyes flows back into your body. Each eye has two punctums, one in the upper eyelid and one in the lower. For people with dry eyes, we can occlude the lower punctum, thereby reducing the amount of liquid escaping back into your body. This results in comfortable eyes.
