- Preservative-free and well tolerated
Reliable protection against irritation of the outer eye
Chronic inflammation of the lid margins is accompanied by swollen, reddened and itchy lid margins. The eyes feel tired and dry, tear or hurt. The edges of the lids and
eyelashes are glued together. If the secretion accumulates in the glands on the edge of the eyelid, ideal conditions are created there for the accumulation and multiplication of bacteria.
In order to prevent the germs from spreading to other areas of the eye, reliable
protection against infection of the mucous membrane is required in addition to effective eye hygiene.
Posiformin® 2% eye ointment is very well suited for use in inflammation of the eyelid margins.
The drug acts directly at the site of inflammation. The irritated edge of the lid and the adjacent conjunctiva are disinfected and protected against invading bacteria.
Antiseptic eye ointment with bibrocathol
The active ingredient bibrocathol contained in Posiformin® 2% eye ointment has proven itself in the local treatment of irritation of the external eye. The substance has a disinfecting effect
and forms a protective membrane on mucous membranes and wound surfaces against the penetration of bacterial pathogens. Due to the astringent (contracting) effect, secretion production can be inhibited. This creates the conditions for the symptoms to subside quickly and without complications. Local application does not result in any significant systemic absorption, so undesirable side effects only occur in very rare cases. The eye ointment contains no preservatives and is therefore particularly well tolerated. As a supplement to the treatment of the eyelids, the POSIFORLID
COMOD® eye drops can be used as care throughout the day, while the Posiformin® 2% eye ointment can be used overnight.
Unless otherwise prescribed by a doctor, an approx. 0.5 cm long line of Posiformin® 2% eye ointment is inserted into the conjunctival sac of the affected eye in adults and children 3 to 5 times a day. Distribute the applications evenly throughout the day. When using the product, tilt your head back slightly, pull the lower eyelid away from your eye and insert a small strand of ointment into the conjunctival sac by gently pressing on the tube.
Then slowly close the eyelid .
Please avoid direct contact of the tube with the eye or facial skin during use. After use, close the tube tightly and store in a child-safe place.
INFLAMMATION OF THE LIDDLE EDGE Red
, irritated eyes and sticky eyelids are often caused by an inflammation of the lid edge, also called blepharitis in medicine. Inflammation of the eyelids can occur when the sebaceous glands produce too much secretion and the excess secretion clogs the glands. In addition, external stimuli such as chemicals, cosmetics or contact lenses as well as certain diseases can promote the development of eyelid inflammation.
MEIBOMAN GLAND DYSFUNCTION
Inflamed lid margins are a symptom of meibomian gland dysfunction (MDD). The meibomian glands secrete an oily film that protects the tear film. If the production of the glands is disrupted, the tear film is no longer adequately protected from evaporation, and the eyes and lids become irritated. With suitable therapy and daily eyelid hygiene, the symptoms can be alleviated or even free of symptoms.
FRESH CORNEAL WOUNDS
Improper handling of contact lenses, a slipping make-up brush, sand and dust when walking - in many everyday situations it can easily lead to mechanical injuries of the cornea come.
In the case of superficial, non-infected wounds, the antiseptic Posiformin® 2% eye ointment forms an effective protective film on the damaged cornea, thus promoting its regeneration and can help alleviate the subjective symptoms.
