What are Clinitas 0.2% Unit Dose Dry Eye Drops?
Clinitas 0.2% Unit Dose Dry Eye Drops contain a preservative-free solution of sodium hyaluronate to lubricate, moisturise and stabilise the tear film for the relief of mild to moderate eye discomfort including dryness, irritation, visual stress or burning.
How to use these eye drops
Clinitas 0.2% Unit Dose Dry Eye Drops come in single-dose droppers that release a single dose of the solution when turned upside down and squeezed gently. The recommended dosage is 1 drop in each eye, once per day or more if necessary. It’s safe to use the drops as often as required.
To use the drops, tilt your head back slightly and hold the dropper upside down near to your eye without letting it touch your eye. Gently squeeze the dropper to release the drop into your eye and close your eye for a minute or two. It may help to press gently on the side of your nose where the corner of your eye meets your nose, as this will prevent the drops from draining out through the nostril.
How does sodium hyaluronate relieve dry eyes?
Sodium hyaluronate eye drops relieve the discomfort of dry eyes by acting as ‘artificial tears’. The ingredient is a lubricant for the surface of your eye, helping to provide moisture with a soothing effect that makes the eyes feel more comfortable.
What causes dry eyes?
