Viscotears is a soothing and long-lasting gel preparation for the treatment of dry eyes, 30 x 0.6ml preservative free vials.
This medicine helps relieve the symptoms of dry eyes in people who do not produce enough of their own tears or because the tear film in the eye is unstable. It belongs to a class of medicines called artificial tears. This medicine contains the main ingredient carbomer which works by forming a moist and lubricating film over the eye. The film stays on the surface of the eye for some time and is not washed off quickly.
If you wear contact lenses, you must remove them before applying this medicine and wait for at least 30 minutes before putting them back in.
If you are using other eye drops, do not use one immediately after each other. You must wait for at least five minutes between using each medicine. This is to stop the second medicine from washing the first medicine out of the eye.
Viscotears must always be the last medicine instilled into the eye.
Consult your doctor if your symptoms do not improve or if they get worse during treatment with this medicine.
Carbomer present at 2.0 mg/g.
Install 1-2 drops in each eye as often as necessary.
Not to be taken by mouth. Discard contents after opening, single use only.
