Many people suffer from dry eye, when their eyes do not make enough tears or the right quality of tears. Eye drops are often used to treat dry eye. However, here at Yukon Eyesore believe in treating the root cause of the problem instead of masking it with a drop. Such as putting punctal plugs inserted into the eyes that can help make them more comfortable.
What Are Punctal Plugs?
Punctal plugs are tiny devices that are placed in the eye’s tear ducts (called puncta) . Puncta are the tiny openings that drain tears from your eyes. About the size of a grain of rice, the plug stops fluid from draining from the eye. This helps keep the eye’s surface moist and comfortable, relieving itchy, burning and red eyes.
