Lacrimedics, Inc. was founded in 1984 by Ophthalmologist, Robert S. Herrick, M.D., a specialist in corneal and external diseases since the 1970s. Dr. Herrick has developed many innovative products and procedures used in the care of patients with Dry Eye Disease (DED) and Lacrimal System Dysfunction (LSD).

The company's proprietary products include the Dissolvable VisiPlug Lacrimal Plug that provides medium-term Occlusion Therapy lasting approximately 180 days and the OPAQUE Herrick Lacrimal Plug for long-term Occlusion Therapy.

Lacrimedics pioneered the development of the Collagen Plugs for the Lacrimal Efficiency Test in the early 1980s. This revolutionary product provides a simple and cost-effective method to diagnose Dry Eye Disease and determine if the patient will respond favorably to Occlusion Therapy.
