Treatment of Dry Eye
Altomed supply two main types of occluding plugs for the treatment of Dry Eye symptoms. Ideal
for the optometrist are the 'external' Punctum Plug products. These are 'grommet' type silicone
rubber plugs that are usually placed in the lower puncta (the opening of the inferior lachrymal
canaliculi on the lower lid area). These 'grommet' are easily visualized when in place and can
be removed if no longer needed.
Altomed can also supply 'internal' Herrick Lachrymal Plugs. When inserted these plugs dwell in the Canaliculi.
Other dry eye related products available from Altomed include punctum dilators and lachrymal washout cannula. If you would like information about these products please contact Altomed customer services or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
