Effective solution for dry eyes
The dry eye ("keratoconjunctivitis sicca") is a disorder of the tear film and the surface of the eye. The cause of the complex disease is often an increased evaporation of the tear film as a result of a disruption of the final layer of the tear film. Common symptoms are dry, red and irritated eyes as well as increased tearing and uncomfortable itching or burning of the eyes. This can have a major impact on everyday life.
For the treatment of dry eyes, high-quality medical wetting solutions ("artificial tears") with hyaluronic acid have proven themselves. The use of thicker gels such as VISMED ® is recommended for intensive moisteningGEL MULTI. The preparation impresses with its pleasantly liquid consistency, so that the gel feels silky soft on the eye - without any visual impairment. The long-lasting tear substitute is also free of preservatives and therefore very well tolerated.
With 0.3% hyaluronic
acid Hyaluronic acid is an endogenous substance that is contained in the tear film and ensures that moisture can be stored and nutrients can be transported. With their special physical and chemical properties, hyaluronic acid solutions are similar to natural tear fluid. They are therefore very popular in ophthalmology to treat dry eye. In VISMED ®GEL MULTI contains hyaluronic acid in a high concentration of 0.3%. Clinical studies prove the effectiveness of VISMED ® GEL MULTI and a significant reduction in symptoms. *

The use of medication such as psychotropic drugs and beta blockers can also affect the production of the tear film.
