The tear fluid has many important functions in the eye: as a lubricant it allows the eye lids to move frictionless over the eyes and it rinses foreign bodies out of the eye. In addition, the tear fluid hydrates and nourishes the cornea and can help ward off pathogens. Insufficient hydration of the eye surface by the tear fluid can result in small lesions to the cornea. Regular rehydration of dry eyes, therefore, brings not only noticeable relief but also prevents damage to the eye.
This is why you should avoid external factors that cause dry eyes such as dry room air, air conditioning or draughts. If that is not possible or does not bring the desired relief, you can use products that lubricate and hydrate the cornea. This way, you re-establish a protective tear film in your eyes.
OmniVision offers you an extensive range of different products for dry eyes. These products are usually in the form of eye drops.
Eye drops with hyaluronic acid are soothing for dry eyes. They hydrate the cornea and conjunctiva similar to the body’s own tear fluid. The contained hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that also occurs in the structures of the human eye and in the tear film, and is therefore particularly well tolerated. It hydrates, lubricates and protects the surface of the eye and ensures an even, stable and long-lasting film of moisture on the surface of the eye.
HYLO-VISION® eye drops from OmniVision for dry eyes are available in various viscosities. The lower the viscosity, the more liquid and fluid the eye drops are. The solution is distributed very easily, yet the exposure time is slightly shorter as the solution is “washed out” quicker. The higher the viscosity, the thicker and less fluid the eye drops. This increases the exposure time on the surface of the eye, allowing intensive hydration and long-lasting relief.
