Effective eye gel for vitamin A deficiency
The smooth Vitagel ®with the proven ingredient retinol palmitate (vitamin A) effectively supports the treatment of dehydration of the cornea and conjunctiva of the eye with a vitamin A deficiency caused by nutritional disorders.

Prevention and healing
The cornea depends on a supply of vitamin A through the tear film. The vitamin A stored in the lacrimal gland is released into the tear fluid, distributed with the tear film on the conjunctiva and cornea and quickly absorbed. An insufficient supply of vitamin A, for example due to malnutrition, can lead to corneal disease and dehydration of the conjunctiva and cornea. Vitagel ® can prevent a vitamin A deficiency in the cornea and conjunctiva and its consequences.

Tilt your head back. With the index finger of one hand, pull the lower lid of the eye downwards. With the other hand, hold the tube vertically over the eye without touching the eye or the skin of the face and put 1 drop into the pulled down conjunctival sac. Close your eye slowly and move it back and forth so that the drop is well distributed.

Contact lenses should be removed before Vitagel ® is used and should not be reinserted until 30 minutes after use.

After using Vitagel ® , your vision may be blurred for a short time and your ability to react may be impaired. During this time you should not drive, operate machines or work without a secure footing.

Our eyes have to be supplied with important vital substances from food. If the body lacks vitamin A due to an unbalanced diet such as malnutrition or one-sided diets, this can lead to acute eye diseases such as dry eyes or corneal opacity. Vitagel ® with retinol can compensate for deficiencies in the cornea and conjunctiva.

A vitamin A deficiency is often the result of diseases such as a disorder of lipid metabolism or liver disease. Either the absorption and utilization of fat-soluble vitamin A from food is influenced or an increased need for vitamin A is caused, which in turn can cause disorders of the cornea and conjunctiva.
