The collagen plugs have a smooth proprietary finish that simplifies insertion of the plug. Collagen plugs are ideal for short-term, diagnostic, and post-surgical occlusion and are absorbable within 2-5 days.
The OASIS Medical Collagen Intracanalicular Plug is designed to be inserted through the punctal opening into the canaliculus in order to block tear drainage through the lacrimal drainage system. The Collagen Intracanalicular Plugs are made from an absorbable suture material. The plugs are 2 mm long and available in multiple sizes: SOFT PLUG Collagen plugs are available in 0.2 mm diameter, 0.3 mm diameter, and 0.4 mm diameter. There are six plugs per package so that a plug can be placed in each canaliculus and two are left over in case a plug is dropped or mishandled.
