A patient Jeanette Jacobs recently sent this kind testimonial after the punctum plug treatment she received for her dry eye condition from our senior optometrist Prakash Rughani
Following on from our conversation earlier this morning please find below my experience for the plug treatment for dry eyes.
When I initially started to notice that my eyes were becoming very dry I started to use eye drops daily to ease the problem, which was crucial as I am a contact lens wearer. However over a couple of years it was clear that my eyes were getting more dry and the drops weren’t as effective.
When I discussed my dry eye problem with Prakash he told me about the plug treatment. Initially I dismissed the treatment as I thought it was invasive and sounded very uncomfortable and involved a surgical procedure. Nevertheless when I expressed my concerns, Prakash explained that the treatment was painless, quick and no surgery was involved.
Feeling more positive I agreed to have the plug treatment and can only say I have never looked back. It is done very quickly and you feel absolutely nothing as they are inserted. Also for me the result was instant. My eyes are moist again and my contact lenses are once more extremely comfortable. I am absolutely delighted with the results.
If anyone is considering this treatment I would encourage it for the reasons I have given above.
