Full Prescribing Info
Contents
Trehalose, sodium hyaluronate.
Description
Each ml contains trehalose 3 g, sodium hyaluronate 0.15 g.
Thealoz Duo is preservative-free which helps provide good levels of tolerance on the eye. The solution can be used by contact lens wearers who wear any type of contact lens and it provides immediate comfort that lasts all day long.
The main ingredients are trehalose, a disaccharide present in many plants and animals, and sodium hyaluronate, a polysaccharide naturally present in the eye.
Trehalose protects and hydrates and is an antioxidant. For these reasons, it is essential in the anhydrobiotic process used in certain tiny organisms (a slow metabolism that helps them live in dry conditions).
Trehalose protects and stabilizes cell membranes, by stopping change of proteins and break-down of fats.
Sodium hyaluronate is a natural polysaccharide found in the human eye which holds water to hydrate and lubricate the surface of the eye. It keeps the solution on the eye surface giving long lasting relief and cutting down the healing time of the corneal epithelium (the clear surface on the eye).
The unique combination of Trehalose and Sodium hyaluronate in THEALOZ DUO protects, hydrates and lubricates the eye surface for a long time and with maximum comfort.
THEALOZ DUO is supplied in the ABAK multi-dose bottle and is a preservative free solution that causes no reactions to users who are sensitive to preservatives.
This innovative and patented device provides eye drops through a 0.2 μm filter, preventing any bacterial contamination of the solution. The solution is protected and can be used for up to 3 months after the bottle is opened.
