Dennis the Chemist recommends this novel eye drop for dry eyes. These eye drops contain hyaluronic acid. A clever little molecule that absorbs massive amounts of water, and retains it wherever it goes. It is the main constituent of joint synovial fluid and aqueous humor in the eyeball itself. As we age we lose the ability to synthesis this molecule there for becoming deficient. This deficiency contributes to dry eyes, wrinkled thin skin, unhealthy joints amongst many diseases.
Applying these eye drops to the eye enable moisture to be delivered and retained at affected area. It is a naturally occurring substance so it is well tolerated by the body.
Hycosan multi-dose eye drops provide long lasting comfort and relief from eye discomfort. This is a common problem with 1 in 4 people attending ophthalmic clinics reporting eye discomfort. Groups particularly prone to eye discomfort include:
- VDU users
- people over 50 years
- contact lens wearers
- eyes after corneal surgery
- srjogens syndrome patients
- post menopausal women
The patented one-way delivery system is not only easy to use, even for those with poor manual dexterity, it allows for safe multiple use without the need for preservatives.
Each bottle delivers 300 drops and so under normal usage levels lasts for up to 12 weeks, making it one of the most cost effective, preservative-free products available.
Hycosan eye drops can be used as frequently as required. Normally three applications per day is sufficient. They are suitable for long term use as long as there is no underlying medical condition.
The 10ml bottle provides 300 drops, providing 3-4 drops per day over 12 weeks
Hycosan eye drops come in a sterile container and contain no preservatives.
- hyaluronic acid sodium salt 0.1%
- sodium dihydrogen phosphate dihydrate
- disodium phosphate dodecahydrate
- water for injection.
Do not touch the tip of the container. To avoid any possible interactions, avoid application of Hycosan until at least 30 minutes after applying any ophthalmic drugs. Avoid use in the case of individual hypersensitivity to any of the products components.
Hycosan should not be used beyond the expiry date - discard the contents 12 weeks after first opening. It is recommended to mark the bottle label to indicate the date of first opening.
Store at room temperature (15-25C) and out of reach of children.
