GENTEAL LUBRICANT EYE DROPS
Active: Hypromellose 3 mg/g
Inactive: Boric acid, sodium chloride, potassium chloride, phosphonic acid and purified water; sodium perborate 0.28~\mg/g as preservative.
The preservatives in many ophthalmic drug formulations can be a source of irritation to the compromised eye. In response to this, Genteal Eye Drops is preserved in the bottle but effectively preservative-free in the eye. Genteal utilises a unique preservative system incorporating sodium perborate. When placed in solution, sodium perborate dissolves and reacts with water to generate a low level of hydrogen peroxide, the agent responsible for preservation. Once dropped into the eye, hydrogen peroxide is broken down into water and oxygen by the eye's naturally occurring enzymes. The oxygen evaporates off the eye while the water absorbs into the tear film leaving hypromellose to moisturise and soothe ocular tissues. Suitable for use with all types of contact lenses.
For use as an ocular lubricant to relieve irritation or dryness of the eye due to wind, dry air, smoke, air pollution or physiological dry eye conditions. Helps protect against further eye irritation.
Known hypersensitivity to any component of the drops.
