When your patients experience symptoms of dry eye, or after eye surgery or an eye injury you may prescribe lubricating eye drops (artificial tears).
HYLO™ is recommended for dry eye and rewetting of contact lenses to minimize dryness.
HYLO™ eye drops contain Sodium Hyaluronate, the sodium salt of Hyaluronic Acid. It forms a regular, stable, long lasting lubricating film on the ocular surface. This film is not easily rinsed off and does not cause blurred vision.
HYLO™ is suitable for all ages, for pregnant women and during lactation.
HYLO™ should not be used if you are sensitive to any of the ingredients. As HYLO™ is preservative free it is well tolerated even when used over extended periods of time. In very rare cases hypersensitive reactions like burning or excessive tearing have been reported which stopped immediately when the use of HYLO™ was discontinued.
Normally your patient may instill one drop three times a day into each eye. HYLO™ can also be used more frequently if necessary. HYLO™ is suitable for long-term treatment.
HINT: Demonstrate the handling of the HYLO™ application system to patients, who use it for the first time! It only takes a moment and ensures compliance.

HYLO™ is recommended for rewetting of contact lenses to minimize dryness. HYLO™ is compatible with hard and soft contact lenses and can be used while wearing contact lenses.
