Silicon Plugs for Dry Eye Treatment

One more of the latest inclusions in the long list of treatments conducted at Dr Agarwal Hospitals is the treatment of Dry Eyes by using silicon plugs. A very effective, painless and reversible treatment, this involves plugging the drainage through which the natural tears drain out of the eyes. There exists one canaliculi in each of the lids which drains tears out of the eyes. First the upper canaliculi is plugged thereby increasing the resistance to the outflow of tears. This allows for the tears to coat the eyes sufficiently thereby reducing symptoms of dry eyes. Certain of the severe dry eyes have been effectively treated by plugging of all the four canaliculi thereby giving complete relief to the patient.
