Sodium Hyaluronate + Ectoine


HYLO DUAL eye drop moisturizes cornea and conjunctiva and protects against excessive evaporation of tears. This stabilization of tears relieves the inflammatory symptoms of irritated eyes. In addition, it also relieves the itching and burning sensations associated with allergy.

HYLO DUAL is indicated for the treatment of dry eye disease.

Burning, itching, tearing, foreign body sensation or the sensation of dry eyes are symptoms of an irritated eye. Quite often this is a result of insufficient lubrication of the surface of the eye. Other symptoms can be triggered by hypersensitivities against certain substances (e.g. pollen, animal hair or house dust), so called allergies. As an allergy shows similar symptoms it is difficult to differentiate between a dry or an allergic eye.

In these cases, HYLO DUAL the dual mode of action of sodium hyaluronate and ectoine in HYLO DUAL helps relieve these symptoms.


HYLO DUAL contains sodium hyaluronate, a physiologic substance which is found in the eye but also in other tissues of the body. Sodium hyaluronate provides an even, stable, especially long lasting lubrication to the surface of the eye without being rinsed away quickly.

Ectoine is a natural substance gained from microorganisms that live in an extreme environment (e. g. salt lakes). To be protected against these extreme environmental conditions these microorganisms form the natural substance ectoine. Its specific properties are used in HYLO DUAL. Ectoine increases the binding of water at the cells of the ocular surface. This forms a physiologic barrier on the conjunctiva against allergenic acting substances.

Ectoine stabilizes the lipid layer of the tear film that protects against excessive evaporation of tears. The interaction of sodium hyaluronate and ectoine provides intensive long lasting lubrication of the ocular surface and protects against evaporation of tears. The typical symptoms of itching and burning that occur as inflammatory reactions to environmentally triggered irritations as well as to allergic reactions are relieved by HYLO DUAL.


Generally, adults and children 6 years and older instil one drop of HYLO DUAL three times a day into the conjunctival sac of each eye. If you apply HYLO DUAL more frequently (e.g. more than 10 times per day) or suffer from more severe complaints you should consult an ophthalmologist in regular intervals.

HYLO DUAL can be used while wearing contact lenses. After inserting contact lenses, waiting for about 30 minutes before applying the eye drops is recommended. In this way, you avoid intolerance reactions which may occur due to interactions between lens care products and HYLO DUAL. Based on the available evidence HYLO DUAL may be used in children 6 years and older, and pregnant and breast-feeding women.

HYLO DUAL should not be used if you are hypersensitive to one of the ingredients and in children younger than 6 years.


Step 1: Remove the cap before use. To do this, hold the cap above the bottle. With your other hand, pull away the bottle from the cap with a rotary movement. Before the first application please turn the HYLO DUAL bottle with its tip down and press the bottom of the bottle repeatedly until the first drop appears at the nozzle. Now the bottle is ready for further use.

Step 2: Hold the bottle upside down and place your thumb on the shoulder of the bottle and the other fingers on the base of the bottle.

Step 3: Support the hand holding the COMOD-bottle with your other hand.

Step 4: When applying the eye drops, please avoid any contact between the tip of the bottle and your eye and skin. With your head leaning back slightly, gently pull down your lower eyelid. Press the base of the bottle vigorously and quickly. This activates the mechanism to release one drop. Because of the special COMOD valve system, the size and speed of each drop remain constant regardless of the pressure applied to the base of the bottle. Slowly close your eyes to allow the fluid to spread evenly on the eye surface.

Step 5: Replace cap immediately after use. Ensure that the dropper tip is dry.

Side Effects

In very rare cases adverse reactions like hypersensitivity, burning or excessive tearing, pain, foreign body sensation or other temporary local irritations have been reported which stop when the use of HYLO DUAL is discontinued. Please note that temporary blurred vision is possible after application of HYLO DUAL due to the viscosity of the eye drops solution. In very rare cases this may cause temporary headache in sensitive patients.

Storage Conditions
