What is HYLO®-GEL used for?
For intensive and curative moisturizing of the eye surface with stronger or chronic dry eye and after surgery on the eye.
When to use HYLO®-GEL?
HYLO®-GEL contains sodium hyaluronate, a natural substance found in the eye but also in other parts of the body. This substance has special physical properties - it produces a uniform, stable and long-lasting moisturizing film on the surface of the eye that is resistant to flushing. Due to these bio adhesive properties, the cornea and conjunctiva are treated and, together with natural tears, are ideally slippery for blinking. HYLO®-GEL contains large amounts of sodium hyaluronate, causing its high viscosity. As a result, the eye is supplied with a stable moisturizing film especially intensively and for a long time. Permanent or stronger discomfort is reduced and the eye is protected from irritation.
After surgery on the eye or after eye injuries, natural tear secretion may be reduced. The regeneration of the surface tissues of the eye requires permanent and sufficient moisturization. By using HYLO®-GEL, the cornea and conjunctiva will be continuously and permanently supplied with moisture, so that physiological healing can be optimized.
Since HYLO®-GEL contains no preservative, it is generally well tolerated. Moreover, it does not contain phosphates - thus avoiding possible complications with the formation of deposits on the cornea.
How often and how long should HYLO®-GEL be used?
The daily dose of HYLO®-GEL is individual - depending on your personal judgment and / or advice from your eye care professional. Usually, 1 drop is used 3 times a day in the conjunctival sac of each eye. In case of severe problems, HYLO®-GEL can be used more often.
If you should use HYLO®-GEL more frequently (more than 10 times a day), have your eyes examined by your eye doctor. HYLO®-GEL is suitable for long-term use, but you should also ask your ophthalmologist for advice on prolonged discomfort.
When should HYLO®-GEL not be used?
HYLO®-GEL should not be used in case of hypersensitivity to any component of the product.
What other policies do you need to follow when storing?
Store at room temperature. Once opened, HYLO®-GEL can be used for 6 months. Do not use after the expiry date. Keep out of the reach of children.
