Description
Duratears ointment contains white petrolatum, anhydrous liquid lanolin, mineral oil.
Duratears ointment, because it was specially designed for use in the eye, is ideal for keeping the eye lubricated and comfortable during the nighttime hours when it is impractical to instill artificial tear drops. There is no medication in Duratears ointment, only a smooth, comfortable ointment base that quickly melts and prevents drying and discomfort. No prescription is required.
