Description of Hylo-Gel Eye Drops
HYLO® GEL eye drops: support for very dry eyes
HYLO® GEL eye drops provide intensive and long-lasting lubrication for severe cases of dry eyes. The drops have a highly viscous consistency and are therefore ideal for the special needs of severe and chronic eye symptoms. In addition, they are outstandingly well-suited to supporting the healing of eyes following an operation.
HYLO® GEL lubricating eye drops can be prescribed for some diseases because of their therapeutic properties. In these cases, they can be prescribed by the doctor and the costs can be paid by health insurance funds. HYLO® GEL eye drops contain the ingredient hyaluronan and are free from preservatives and phosphates. That is why HYLO® GEL lubricating eye drops have very good tolerability.
HYLO® GEL eye drops: for severe and chronic cases of dry eyes
Anyone who suffers constantly from severe symptoms of dry eyes often feels that his/her whole quality of life has been affected. This is hardly surprising, as the symptoms can be accompanied not only by unsightly redness, but also by a scratching, burning or painful foreign body sensation in the eye.
The reason for this is usually insufficient productsion of lacrimal fluid. But also when the tear film has a disrupted composition, it can lead to the normal lubrication of the surface of the eye no longer being possible. The eyes start to water and yet are not protected against drying out and irritation.
Defective or insufficient lubrication of the eye can lead to drying out and damage of the cornea and increase the risk of infection. HYLO® GEL lubricating eye drops are an effective means of relieving the symptoms and avoiding possible secondary diseases.
It is also possible that the productsion of tears is hindered or disrupted after eye surgery, like in the treatment of glaucoma or cataracts. In such cases, it is particularly important to have good eye lubrication for the healing and regeneration of the surface of the eye. HYLO® GEL eye drops are also ideal in this case for supporting the natural tear film.
Intensive lubrication, long-lasting effect, good tolerability
The viscous and good adherence properties of HYLO® GEL lubricating eye drops make them special. They facilitate long-lasting contact of the film of fluid with the surface of the eye. The eyelids can close smoothly without irritation occurring again and without the tears being washed away.
The elastic consistency of HYLO® GEL lubricating eye drops is due to the special properties of the hyaluronan used. Hyaluronan is a substance which is naturally present in the eye and other areas of the body, for example as a main component of joint fluid, and it is therefore very well tolerated. Despite their gel-like consistency, HYLO® GEL eye drops do not impair vision and they can even be used at the same time as contact lenses. Like all products from the HYLO® EYE CARE range, HYLO® GEL eye drops are free from preservatives and phosphates and therefore are well tolerated.
HYLO® GEL lubricating eye drops have been developed for the special requirements of chronically dry eyes and for particularly severe cases of dry eyes.
