Dry Eye Syndrome (D.E.S.) is the most common eye disorder occurring in approximately 20% of the population. It is the result of a decline in the quantity or quality of tears produced. This is caused when the tear glands in the upper and lower eyelids do not produce enough of the right kind of tears.
Punctal occluders block the punctum (tear duct), which is the drainage duct that carries tears away from the surface of the eye. By blocking these, tears are prevented from draining away too quickly leaving the eye dry. This procedure is widely-performed, safe, quick, painless, and totally reversible.
The addition of a daily eyelid hygiene regimen to a treatment based on tear lubricants helps restore corneal health allowing the eye to function normally.
