WHAT IS DRY EYE SYNDROME?
Dry eye syndrome occurs when your eyes do not produce good quality or a good quantity of tears.
An adequate and consistent layer of tears on the surface of the eye is essential to keep your eyes healthy, comfortable and seeing well. Tears bathe the eye’s surface to keep it moist and wash away dust, debris and microorganisms that could damage the cornea and lead to an eye infection.
A normal tear film consists of three important components, each component of the tear film serves a critical purpose:
- An oily (lipid) component – lipids help keep the tear film from evaporating too quickly and increase lubrication.
- A watery (aqueous) component.
- A mucous-like (mucin) component – helps anchor and spread the tears across the surface of the eye.
What Are Dry Eye Plugs?
Dry eye plugs, also known as punctal plugs, are tiny, biocompatible devices inserted into the tear ducts to treat dry eye syndrome. These plugs work by blocking the drainage of tears from the eye’s surface, helping to maintain a healthy tear film and alleviate dryness.
