What are Viscotears Single Dose Units?

Viscotears Single Dose Units are eye drops which take the form of a liquid gel. They are designed to treat dry and sore eyes, creating ‘artificial tears’ to help to promote hydration in your eyes. Ideal for anyone who suffers from dry and tired eyes.


How will these eye drops help to treat my dry, sore eyes?

Viscotears Single Dose Units use an active ingredient called carbomer in their liquid gel. They belong to a group of eye drops referred to as ‘artificial tears’, meaning that they treat dryness and irritation by lubricating your eyes, relieving discomfort and itching.


How to use Viscotears Single Dose Units.

Before using Viscotears Single Dose Units, remove any contact lenses and leave for at least 15 minutes after application before putting lenses back in. Wash your hands and then shake the single-dose unit so that the gel moves towards the tip of the applicator. Tilt your head backwards and pull down your lower eyelid with one hand. Look upwards and then gently squeeze the applicator to insert one drop of Viscotears into your eyes. Blink a few times to spread the liquid gel over your eye and wipe the excess gel from eyelids. Repeat with the other eye.
