Eye drops which replace the body’s own tear fluid are often used to treat dry eyes. The effect of artificial tears is similar to the effect of lubricating eye drops. They coat the eye surface of dry eyes, forming a tear film protecting the cornea and help to adjust the fluid balance.
Artificial Tears for Dry Eyes
Artificial tears are commonly applied as eye drops. These preparations often contain dexpanthenol and hypromellose. Dexpanthenol is a well known and proven remedy which is also suitable for use in combination with a wetting agent. Dexpanthenol is being used in medicine for decades due to its healing and epithelising effect. Known as an ointment for irritated skin and mild excema, this compound can (in the form of eye drops and ointments) also alleviate dry eyes.
Hypromellose is a compound wich increases viscositiy, forming a clear protective film, lubricating the eye. This lubricating film replaces the physiological function of the lacking tear fluid in dry eyes.
