WHAT IS DRY EYE SYNDROME?
Dry Eye Syndrome (D.E.S.) is the most common eye disorder occurring in approximately 20% of the population. It is the result of a decline in the quantity or quality of tears produced. This is caused when the tear glands in the upper and lower eyelids do not produce enough of the right kind of tears.
THE COMPLEXITY OF TEARS
Tears function to protect your eyes and keep them lubricated and comfortable. There are two types of tears produced in your eyes:
Interestingly enough, ‘watery’ eyes can be a symptom of D.E.S. Irritants that cause D.E.S. can trigger the production of reflex tears. However, since reflex tears do not have the proper lubricating composition, the discomfort remains.
WHAT ARE VISCOADAPTIVE HYALURONAN EYE DROPS?
i-drop® is the most advanced and effective artificial tear available and the only solution that uses viscoadaptive hyaluronan. i-drop® solutions adapt their viscosity with each and every blink ensuring excellent ocular surface coverage and a significantly longer lasting artificial tear. This gives patients instant and persistent relief, increasing their comfort, and lowering their total therapy cost due to the need for fewer applications.
i-drop®, viscoadaptive eye drops, for the treatment of dry eye conditions, provides the combined advantages of a cohesive physical property, due to the viscoelastic hyaluronan inactive ingredient, and a dispersive physical property, due to its low molecular weight glycerin lubricant. Collectively, these combined biopolymers within the i-drop® viscoadaptive eye drops supplement the tear film (as seen in the image), promote excellent coating and recoating of the surfaces of the eye, provide superior moisturizing and lubrication for enhanced patient comfort, and have longer residence time without blurring or foreign body sensation. Separately, neither a cohesive viscoelastic eye drop nor a dispersive viscous eye drop offer the total benefits that are achieved in this viscoadaptive eye drop which incorporates both of these different biopolymeric components.
