Andrew Matheson, a Therapeutic Optometrist and Dry Eye Specialist, shows how different types of punctal plugs are fitted and removed.
Punctal plugs are a very important part of dry eye treatment and work by reducing the outflow of tears through the lacrimal drainage apparatus.
Here we see the fitting and removal of Herrick Intracanalicular plugs and Eagle Vision Freeman-type punctal plugs. Later punctal cautery is discussed.
