Hylo Eye Care Drops
Hylo Eye Care drops (sodium hyaluronate)…
Hylo Eye Care drops (sodium hyaluronate)
- Lubristil eye drops contain the active ingredient sodium hyaluronate, which is a type of medicine known as an eye lubricant.
What is it used for?
Dry eye conditions.
- Lubristil eye drops provide soothing relief from the symptoms of dry eyes, such as soreness, irritation or a gritty sensation. These may be caused by your eye not producing enough tears to keep the eye moist, or by things such as certain medical conditions or treatments, prolonged use of computer screens (where you tend to blink less and thus not lubricate the eyes sufficiently), or drying atmospheric conditions such as air-conditioning, central heating or atmospheric pollution.
- Lubristil eye drops are preservative-free and can be used by people who wear rigid or gas permeable contact lenses, or who are sensitive to preservatives.
How does it work?
- Hylo Eye Care contain the active ingredient sodium hyaluronate, which is a type of medicine known as an eye lubricant.
- Sodium hyaluronate is a thick elastic polymer that is found naturally throughout the body, particularly in areas of the body that need lubrication, such as the joints and the structures of the eye.
- When applied as eye drops it forms a transparent film that coats the surface of the eyeball. The film is able to 'hold on' to water molecules in the tears, which helps keep the eyeball moist, and remains stable when you blink, thus providing lasting lubrication for the eyes. The drops are used as artificial tears to moisten, lubricate and soothe dry eyes.
- Sodium hyaluronate has also been shown to stimulate the development of epithelial cells on the eye's surface, which can help to heal damage to the surface of the eye resulting from lack of lubrication. The long-lasting film also protects the surface of the eye during the healing process.
How do I use it?
- Wash your hands before using the eye drops.
- One or two drops should be put into the eyes four times a day.
- To avoid introducing germs into the eyes, don’t allow the open end of the single-dose container to touch your eye or anything else.
- Lubristil eye drops come in single-dose units that are sterile and preservative-free. Each unit is for single use only. There should be enough in each dose unit to treat both eyes if required. Once you have put the drops in you should throw away the dose unit, even if there is some medicine left in it.
- These drops are for use in the eyes only. They must not be taken by mouth.
- After putting in the eye drops you may get slightly blurred vision or a mild stinging sensation. If your vision is affected it is recommended that you do not drive or use any machinery until your vision has cleared.
- If your eye irritation persists or gets worse after using these drops, or you experience a headache, eye pain, vision changes or continued redness, you should stop using these eye drops and consult your doctor.
