Dry Eye means that your eyes may not be making enough tears, that the tears which are being produced are of poor quality or that the tears that are produced evaporate away. The normal function of tears is to keep the surface of the eye wet and lubricated so any shortage of tears or reduction in their quality can produce a gritty, burning sensation of the eyes and can also disturb vision.
The symptoms of Dry Eye syndrome may include:
Hyabak® for Mild to Medium Dry Eye
As natural as tears… The best of both worlds: Sodium Hyaluronate and Preservative-free. Hyabak® multi-dose eye drops contain 0.15% sodium hyaluronate for long lasting relief from eye discomfort and dry feeling eyes. Sodium hyaluronate offers optimal water retention because it acts like a sponge, retaining water and releasing it progressively. These ‘intelligent’ drops flow when you blink and retain a clear surface when your eye is still.
How to use: 1 drop in each eye during the day as often as necessary. In contact lens –wearers: a drop on each lens when putting on and removing them, and also as often as necessary during the day.
Thealoz® for Medium to Severe Dry Eye
Thealoz® Preservative-free eye drops are a new concept in Dry Eye management that comes from nature. It has a novel mode of action which may enable trehalose to address different causes of dryness. Thealoz® works by protecting the cells of the cornea and conjunctiva and giving resistance to dryness.
How to use: 1 drop in each eye as often as necessary. Can be used whilst wearing contact lenses.
