VIZcellose® 0.5% Carmellose Eye Drops

READ CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU START TO USE THE PRODUCT

VIZcellose 0.5% is a sterile, ophthalmic strong moisturising and protective solution, with physiological pH, based upon carmellose.

Thanks to the OSD closure system- able to preserve the microbiological, chemical and physical characteristics of the solution – VIZcellose 0.5% does not contain preservative. The absence of preservatives allows the use of the solution by contact lens wearers without the need of removing them.

Carmellose (CMC) is a polysaccharide known as mucilage. It increases the residence time of tears as well as increase the viscosity of tear film. Thanks to its proprieties carmellose protects the eyes against irritation and moisture the ocular surface, relieving discomfort sensation by creating a protective, transparent and viscoelastic shield. It helps the restore of the natural tear film for a lasting relief.

VIZcellose 0.5% relieves symptoms of dry eyes such as burning, itching, and foreign body sensation. VIZcellose 0.5% also acts as lubricant, providing relief of dry eye conditions, including those associated with the use of PC, infrequent blinking, certain medical treatments, atmospheric pollution, dry atmospheres (e.g. air conditioning, wind and sun) and ophthalmic stress due to the use of eye lenses.

VIZcellose 0.5% with a 0.5 % of carmellose can be used in case of a mild dry eye syndrome or dry eyes symptoms or more commonly, in case of discomfort sensation.

VIZhyal 0.17% Sodium Hyaluronate Eye Drops

Introduction

Thanks to its peculiar composition, VIZhyal 0.17% is able to perform a protective, moisturizing, humectant, antioxidant and nourishing action and therefore facilitates the process of re-epithelialization of the whole ocular surface (cornea and conjunctiva), contributing to the creation of an appropriate microenvironment, restoring the correct balance of the tear film, and then at the same time contributing to the lenition of irritations due to both environmental factors and surgery.

Description

VIZhyal 0.17%is a Medical Device for ophthalmic application based on a sterile, preservative-free, light viscosity aqueous solution, that contains elements which are naturally present in ocular tissues and in the tear film, hydrophilic polymers and moisturizers (hyaluronic acid with two types of molecular weight; polyvinylpyrrolidone), an essential amino acid (glycine), a vitamin (_-tocopherol acetate) combined with specific-action components – and in particular an extract of natural origin (Centella Asiatica) – which, all together, facilitate a faster tissue re-epithelialization.

Indications dry eye

VIZhyal 0.17% is indicated for the relief of moderate dry eye symptoms due to both extrinsic and intrinsic causes, such as:

  • Unfavourable environment and climate conditions, such as the use of air conditioning (in the car, office, at home), strong wind, air pollution and when the climate is very hot.
  • Chronic topical therapy with eyedrops containing preservatives.
  • Incorrect use of contact lenses, of any kinds, worn for long time during the day.
  • Dry eye due to allergies, conjunctivitis, vitamin A deficiency.
  • Anatomical eyelid alteration (incongruity eyelid-bulb, abnormal eyelid opening, abnormal blinking).
  • Ocular pathology due to abnormal tear film lipid composition, such as blepharitis.
  • Insufficient production of the lipid layer of the tear film due to Meibomian gland dysfunction.
  • Inefficient blinking due to, for example, prolonged use of the computer or prolonged driving.
  • State of menopause or post-menopause.

Surgery

VIZhyal 0.17% is also indicated after surgery, and in particular refractive surgery, such as photorefractive keratectomy (PRK or excimer laser ablation) as it assists the physiological process of ocular repair and re-epithelisation (during which the collagen synthesis necessary for the closure of the lesion occurs ) as:

  • Contributes to an adequate degree of lubrication avoiding the rubbing of the eyelid during blinking, which would cause further irritation of the ocular epithelium and state of algia.
  • Contrasts the dry eye condition (derived from the intervention itself or from the commonly prescribed drug therapy) thanks to the humectant and moisturizing action of hyaluronic acid
  • It performs a marked antioxidant action (thanks to the triterpenes and flavonoids contained in the extract of centella asiatica, as well as Vitamin E) with capture of free radicals and chelation of heavy metals, thus protecting the damaged tissues
  • Rebalances the ocular microenvironment compromised by the intervention, replenishing the tear film with substances
  • physiologically present in it (such as glycine, mineral salts, water)

Contact lenses

VIZhyal 0.17% is indicated for use with both soft and RPG contact lenses; more specifically:

  • To cushion lenses: place one drop on the inner side of the lens prior to application on the eye; this will protect the corneal surface.
  • A few drops of products, placed directly on the lens prior to application, help remove traces of preservative from the lens multipurpose or storage solution.
  • With the lenses on the eye apply one or two drops to each eye and blink a few times to make it more comfortable and relieve from dry eye. This also improves the wetting and hydration of the conjunctiva, minimizing the damages due to friction while blinking and in case of conjunctival tissue abrasions helps quicker healing.
  • After lenses removal, a few drops of product relieve from ocular fatigue due to long-time wearing moreover, VIZhyal 0.17% contributes to repair the epithelial exfoliation which is the direct consequence of contact lenses use.

VIZhyal 0.17% is indicated for frequent and prolonged use. Can be used during the day or alternatively before bed (night use).

VIZhyal 0.4% Sodium Hyaluronate Eye Drops

VIZhyal 0.4% is a sterile solution for ophthalmic use with a physiological pH, based upon a patented technology of cross-linking Hyaluronic Acid (HA) with Urea, therefore enhancing and improving the specific mechanical properties of native HA, resisting to hyaluronidase degradation much longer than native HA, thus with higher and prolonged lubricant and hydrating action than native HA.

The hydrating web structure of cross-linked HA is capable to deliver water for a prolonged period improving the lubricating properties of native HA while boosting its moisturizing effects at the same time it is therefore indicated as an adjuvant in dry-eye syndrome. The cross-linked HA is also an efficient free radical scavenger, performing a re-epithelizing action for a higher protection of the corneal surface. The cross-linked HA provides to the product lubricating, moisturizing and repairing properties, capable of giving relief to ocular dryness due to dry eye syndrome, irritated or tired eye in case of inflammatory conditions or environmental factors. VIZhyal 0.4% relieves redness, dryness, fatigue and discomfort to the eyes and ocular mucosa caused by dry eye syndrome, environmental factors such as wind, smoke, pollution, prolonged exposure to sunlight, dried salt, sea water or pool water, or due to intense commitment to study, work, prolonged use of the computer, long period of driving, lacrimal abnormalities secondary to inflammations, eye surgery or eyelid aesthetic surgery and chronic blepharitis. Hydrates and lubricates the cornea and the conjunctiva in case of dry eye due to the use of contact lenses. The formula was developed to ensure maximum comfort already in the first moments after the application. It is suitable for everyday use, daily and night-time. It does not contain preservatives and/or molecules with anti-inflammatory and vaso-constrictive actions.

VIZhyal 0.4% is indicated for:

  •  For reinstatement and improvement of tear film stability in dry eye syndrome.
  • After refractive surgery.

To relieve the eyes in cases of reddening, fatigue and discomfort of the eye or the ocular mucosa due to:

  • Environmental factors (air conditioned, excessive exposure to solar radiation, wind, smoke, pollution, sea water or pool water and dried salt).
  • Dryness of the eyes due to excessive fatigue caused by working on the computer for lengthy periods, study.
  • Lacrimal abnormalities secondary to inflammations, chronic blepharitis.
