Action
VISMED/VISMED GEL contains sodium hyaluronate, a natural polymer, which is also present in the structures of the human eye. The particular physical characĀ­teristics of sodium hyaluronate confer to VISMED/VISMED GEL its viscoelastic and water retaining properties. VISMED/VISMED GEL provides a stable coating on the surface of the eye which is only slowly eliminated by blinking. Therefore VISMED/VISMED GEL combines long lasting relief with maximum comfort. VISMED/VISMED GEL is well tolerated due to its unique composition. VISMED/VISMED GEL is free from preservatives.
Indications/Uses
Vismed: For lubrication of the eyes in case of sensation of dryness, burning and ocular fatigue and other minor complaints of no pathological significance induced, for example, by dust, smoke, dry heat, air conditioning, wind, cold, extended computer screen use or contact lens wear (rigid or soft).
Vismed Gel: For sustained lubrication of the eyes in case of sensation of dryness, burning and ocular fatigue and other minor complaints of no pathological significance, induced, for example, by dust, smoke, dry heat, air conditioning, wind, cold, extended computer screen use, contact lens wear (rigid or soft) or by ophthalmological screening methods.
Dosage/Direction for Use
Twist off the tab. Tilt the head backwards and position the tip of the container above the eye to be treated. Move the lower eyelid down with the forefinger of one hand. Press the container and one drop of VISMED/VISMED GEL will easily flow out. If not otherwise recommended, instill 1 or 2 drops of VISMED/VISMED GEL onto the eye as often as needed. After blinking, the solution will disperse and form a transparent and long lasting coating on the surface of the eye. VISMED/VISMED GEL may also be used while wearing contact lenses (rigid or soft).
Contraindications
