Here are some of our patients said about Tear Duct Occluder:
I use the device twice daily and I find it has contributed greatly to my continued stability for eye pressure (an average 2 point drop to 17) and comfort in applying the drops with much less to almost no bad aftertaste. It has been a comfortable and stable fit as well. Thank you for such a great device; it has made a difference in many ways. I never want to be without it!

“I have had two pressure readings since using the device and they seem to be holding at a point or two below my “usual” reading.
I am very happy with the device and truly feel it is working for me! It gives me reassurance that my eye drops are being administered correctly!.” – Kathy, Moultonborough, NH – user since 5/23/2017.
“I use it faithfully twice a day since you offered it to me and for the first time my reading on my right eye was 14.5 instead of 16-17 which has been stable the last few months at that reading. It is a drop that we were hoping for…. I would highly recommend your tear duct occluder to anyone with Glaucoma issues. The device also makes it much easier to comply with keeping the maximum efficacy of the eye drops for a full five minutes in the eyes. It’s been a marvelous invention and I truly thank you for it. For me it has delayed the drainage surgery that was my only other option.” – Barbara, North Smithfield, RI. – user since 5/30/2017.
“It works very well. I do use it 50 percent of the time.” – Michael, Hopkinton, MA – user since 6/20/2017
“I use the device, probably, 80 percent of the time. Sometimes, it is impossible for social or time constraint reasons.
I put in (various) drops seven times a day, so you can imagine how difficult it is to always have privacy and time. I can’t be out to dinner and put your occluder on!! One of my eyes is being watched weekly, so I have had many pressure checks over the last two months and my pressures have remained constant. The eye that we are most worried about has not gone up or down.” – Debbie, Medfield, MA – user since 8/1/2017.
“It does appear to be working for me. My wife usually puts the Azopt drops in because that one is quite expensive and I hate to miss my eye. It’s comfortable, easy to use and I would recommend it to other patients.” – Tony, Wrentham, MA – user since 8/15/2017.
“Been using your device for a couple of weeks while traveling and am very pleased…It’s a wonderful device and convenient for putting in drops and maintaining dosage.” – William, Ashland, MA – user since 9/5/2017.
“Pressures are coming down. Very pleased with your device. Very convenient, I do need another one for travel. How and where can I obtain one?
Thanks so much for introducing me to this amazing device. Telling everyone I can about it.” – William. Ashland, MA – user since 9/5/2017.
“Xiidra works well for my dry eye but the long lasting dysgeusia from the drops was awful until I used Tear Duct Occluder to prevent the drops from draining into my throat” – Bertha, Weston, MA – user since 3/15/2017.
