  • Can you get Lipiflow/BlephEx while punctal plugs are in?

    Can I perform these procedures with puncta plugs? Also do I need BlephEx, or will Lipiflow alone with a little manual lid expression suffice?

    Yes I believe it is perfectly safe. A lot of people have permanent plugs and they still get those procedures

      Yes, I have lower plugs and have had LipiFlow and manual expression with no problems. Iíve also had probing several times with no issues. Am assuming BlexEx would be fine too. I think itís fairly common for patients to have plugs when they get these procedures. But itís a good idea to list on any paperwork for the procedure that you have plugs, and also mention to them right before the procedure.

        Plugs shouldn't be an issue.
