A continuing dryness of the ocular surface leaves its mark on the sensitive cornea. The inevitable blink of the eye and the friction associated with it causes ocular irritation. Red eyes, itching, burning and a painful foreign body sensation are the consequences. The accompanying potentially long-term inflammation can greatly affect the sufferer. A lasting recovery requires a particularly intensive lubrication. The naturally occurring endogenous sodium hyaluronate is ideally suited as a long-lasting, intensive ocular lubricant. Due to its chemical structure, sodium hyaluronate binds and retains many times its own weight in water. It adheres perfectly to the ocular surface and forms a uniform and stable film that keeps the eyes lubricated, thus favouring the healing of a damaged ocular surface. HYLO-PARIN® also contains heparin that acts as an additional lubricant. Therefore, it supports the regeneration of an irritated cornea and conjunctiva and ensures a more rapid and long-lasting recovery. HYLO-PARIN® contains glycerol, which has a double benefit for patients. On the one hand, it protects the ocular cells against hypertonic stress that is potentially painful. On the other hand its oily consistency allows glycerol to act as a lubricant, which reduces the friction between the eyelid and the irritated cornea.
Preservative and phosphate free in the patented COMOD® device
Preservatives, which are designed to prevent contamination of eye drops during storage and use, can affect the natural tear film and damage the cells of the ocular surface. Furthermore, they can cause intolerance reactions1. Modern ocular lubricants are therefore preservative free. This also applies to HYLO-PARIN® as it is provided in the patented COMOD® multi-dose device that, in a unique way, prevents contamination of its contents. Phosphates that are widely used in eye drops can also have a harmful effect on an already damaged cornea2. The binding of phosphate to calcium, which is released from damaged corneal cells, may lead to the formation of sparingly soluble calcifications that can permanently impair vision. Therefore, eye drops used on a dry and damaged ocular surface should not contain phosphates. HYLO-PARIN® is phosphate free and therefore presents no risk of corneal calcification.
