Soft plugs for dry eyes

Soft plugs for dry eyes

We fit Extended duration plugs for dry eyes. These canalicular plugs reduce the outflow of tears away from the eyes. As a result of the reduced outflow the eyes stay wetter and more comfortable. The plugs are 0.5mm in diameter and 2mm long. They are not visible once inserted and there is no pain or discomfort. As a result of having the plugs fitted most dry eye patients do not require as many eye drops, and some don’t require eye drops at all for dry eyes. We can fit the plugs in both practices, the cost is £15 for a pair of plugs and they last about 3 months. After this time they wash out and will have to be refitted. We can assess you for dry eye under MECS, see this link.
