Would be interested to hear from anyone who has had their tear ducts cauterised. My ophthalmologist is proposing this as a more permanent treatment for my dry eyes. I have had punctual plugs put in but one has already come out! If you have had cauterisation done, could you tell me how you found the procedure and how long it took for eyes to recover? Would there be a problem with driving home after the procedure? Did you actually find it helpful for your dry eye symptoms? I'm due to have a review appointment with my ophthalmologist at the beginning of May and would like to know a bit more about what is involved in this procedure before then.
Thanks for your help.
