Parasol - Punctal Occluder

Permanent occlusion, though easily reversible, Parasol is indicated for chronic dry eye conditions. Made of medical grade silicone, one glance at the Parasol Punctal Occluder and you'll recognize a breakthrough product, offering distinct benefits for you and your dry eye patients.

Easy To Insert

— The Parasol’s hollow nose collapses on insertion, eliminating the need for punctal dilation in most cases. It’s easier on you and more comfortable for your patients.

Simple Sizing

— Two sizes, small and medium, fit virtually all patients. X-small and large sizes are available for uncommonly sized puncta.

Guaranteed Retention

—The Parasol® is designed for excellent retention, as demonstrated by an independent clinical study. Even better, the Parasol® is backed by a no-nonsense retention guarantee.** If your patient loses our Parasol® plug within 6 months of insertion, we will replace it at no charge.

Extend - Synthetic Implants

Extend Absorbable Synthetic Implants provide occlusion for up to 3 months for patients experiencing short-term dry eye symptoms. These implants are ideal for the transient dry eye associated with LASIK or other ocular surgeries. Extend implants can also be used for allergy sufferers, contact lens discomfort, climate change or to sustain drug contact time and effectiveness.

Micro Flow - Partial Occlusion

Designed to provide a simple, reversible means of partial occlusion, Micro Flow Punctal Occluders limit the drainage of tears into the lacrimal duct. Ideal when total occlusion is too much.

Event Date: 30th May 2019 - 1st June 2019

Event Region: Manchester

Positive Impact will be launching the new formulation HydraMed Night gel. The improved lanolin-free formulation is for more sensitive eyes. HydraMed will take centre stage in the company’s ‘best in class’ dry eye portfolio, as part of the Dry Eye Zone.

Director of Marketing and Professional Sales, Nick Atkins, will also be presenting in the Exhibitor Pavilion on Friday 31 May at 3.30pm. His presentation, ‘One dry eye drop to replace them all!’ will focus on the unique formulation and performance of HydraMed.

HydraMed is a dry eye drop using a natural bi-polymer to rapidly relieve dry gritty sensations in contact lens and non-contact lens wearers. Regular use of this unique and patented drop formulation is clinically proven to improve patient comfort and the condition of the tear film and ocular surface, in less than 1-month. The bi-polymer is an interaction of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and Tamarind Seed Polysaccharide (TSP) that displays increased water absorption compared to the single polymers. This presentation will share data showing that HydraMed really is in a league of its own in improving the signs and symptoms of contact lens and non-contact lens Dry Eye.

Astigmatism: Contact Lens options when disposables can’t cope

‘Specialist Club’ is an exciting new educational initiative. Whilst not strictly a club it’s designed to bring together like-minded practitioners keen to develop their sphere of practice in interesting new directions – some a niche and some not so niche.

This 2nd Specialist Club is once again focused on contact lenses. Following rave reviews at our inaugural meeting we are delighted that our keynote speaker Indie Grewal returns to share how he’s successfully commercialised so-called ‘specialist’ contact lenses.

The theme is fitting lenses for astigmatism when disposable lenses no longer work or don’t have the range. It is a must attend event for anyone specialising in contact lenses or those interested in expanding their scope of fitting beyond just disposable soft lenses.

It’s not often that you’ll find this quality of interactive education, covering so many useful lens types, under one roof. Not only that but the cost of attendance is dwarfed by the value of the free lenses being offered by the sponsors.

Places are limited so early booking is advised.

Programme highlights include:

  • Fitting live patients with:
    • Hybrid, toric GP, scleral and soft toric lenses
  • Topography session
  • Hands-on session with hybrid and sclerals

Attendance includes:

  • Lunch & refreshments
  • Free pairs of lenses worth over £340!
  • Places strictly limited

After having my left eye plugged a week ago, I have noticed a significant difference in the dryness and comfort of my left eye compared to the right. The procedure itself is quick and painless and now I am not having to rely on drops to lubricate my eye anymore I am looking forward to having the right eye done.

- The Contact Lens Practice

I really got a lot from the BVI Punctal Plug training in Birmingham two weeks ago. I have now received the plugs and fitted two patients succesfully. I also purchased a headband magnifier with led light - this makes both hands available and plug fitting much easier. Patients are impressed.
