Punctal plugs are devices that are inserted into the tear ducts of tears. They enable symptoms of dry eyes to be improved by blocking the flow of tears from the eyes to the nose.  This enables them to stay around longer in the eye and keep it moist.  See your eyeMd and have your eyes evaluated for your symptoms.  Different medications may help as well, Restasis.
