Glycerol + Hypromellose + Polyethylene Glycol 400

Indications

It is indicated for the symptomatic relief of burning, irritation, and discomfort due to dryness of the eye or exposure to wind or sun. It is also indicated for the treatment of keratoconjunctivitis sicca.

Pharmacology

This eye drop is an almost colorless, clear aqueous lubricant sterile ocular solution administered to the eye(s). After topical application of this eye drop, it spreads rapidly over the conjunctiva and cornea forming a lubricating and protective film. Polyethylene Glycol 400 increases the stability of tear film and due to greater muco-adhesive properties hypromellose helps the tear film to attach with the ocular surface. Glycerin restores moisture to the dry eye. Electrolytes which are similar to the natural tears maintain good corneal epithelial surface.
