Snug Plugs™

Snug Plugs™ are designed to provide effective punctal occlusion for the treatment of dry eye. Like all products from FCI Ophthalmics, Snug Plugs™ have been painstakingly researched, and they are manufactured from the most advanced materials. Snug Plugs™ are made of medical grade silicone and are preloaded in a stretched position, returning to their natural shape when released in the punctum. Before removing the inserter, it should be verified that the plug has been released into the punctum.

  • 2 preloaded plugs per box

"Ready-Set" Punctum Plugs

These ultra-thin, medical-grade silicone collarette plugs are used for punctal occlusion. "Ready-Set" punctum plugs conform to the natural anatomy of the eyelid for maximum patient comfort. For ease of use, these punctal plugs from FCI are pre-loaded on a disposable inserter/dilator device and are easily removed with forceps.

  • Designed by J.A. Bernard, M.D.
  • Individually sterile-packed
  • 2 preloaded plugs per box
  • Slim Mini and Slim Petite plugs offer a slightly smaller bulb, for ease of insertion, and because of their size, they do not have the slanted collarette.
  • Exclusive slanted collarette plugs hug the natural curve of the eye.
  • Micro to Large plugs have slightly larger bulbs to resist migration and prevent rubout.
