The evolution for dry eye treatment.
For many patients, the road to finding a satisfactory therapy with an artificial tear substitute or moisturizer is difficult. Many products are tested and seldom achieve the desired result or relieve painful symptoms that affect the patient’s quality of life.
People who are moderately or severely affected by the syndrome, especially when they are caused by increased evaporation of the tear (hyperevaporation), often complain about unpleasant side effects from applying eye drops. These include burning as well as adverse reactions, which can be encouraged by excipients such as emulsifiers or preservatives that are toxic to the cornea.
Finally, a new kind of dry eye therapy is available for this type of patient, specifically addressing hyperevaporation.
