  • What should I do if my punctal plug disappeared under my eyelid?


    My six-week dissolvable punctal plug (a tiny device placed in the eye to treat dry eye) popped out and disappeared under my eyelid yesterday. I'd only had it in for a few days. Will it dissolve on its own or do I need to go back to the doctor?


    The dissolvable plug will either dissolve on its own or be washed away by your tears. You may have already wiped it out of your eye with a tissue. No worries. It will not hurt you.
