Novartis Pharmaceuticals Limited

How does it work?

Viscotears eye gel contain the active ingredient carbomer, which is a type of medicine known as an eye lubricant. It is used for the treatment of the symptoms of dry eye (such as soreness, burning, irritation or dryness) caused by your eye not producing enough tears to keep the eye wet.

Carbomer is a synthetic polymer that forms a viscous eye gel. It produces a transparent, lubricating and moistening film on the surface of the eye and is used as artificial tears.

Carbomer clings to the surface of the eye and is therefore not washed out of the eye as quickly as some other lubricating eye drops.

Viscotears eye gel can be used as a substitute for natural tears for people who suffer from dry eyes because they do not produce enough of their own tears or for people who suffer from sore eyes because their tear film is unstable.

Viscotears eye gel is available in a small tube or in single-use vials with a twist off seal.

What is it used for?

  • Dry eye conditions.
  • Dryness of the eye surface (cornea) and lining of the eye socket (conjunctiva) due to reduced tear production (keratoconjunctivitis sicca).

Warning!

  • Wash your hands before using the eye gel.
  • When using the eye drops you should take care not to touch your eye or any surface with the dropper tip, to avoid contaminating the eye drops.
  • Contact lenses should not be worn during treatment with this product.
  • This medicine may cause your vision to blur temporarily after you have applied it into your eye. Do not drive or operate machinery until this has worn off.
  • Viscotears eye gel in tubes should discarded four weeks after the first opening. You may find it helpful to write the date of opening on the pack. Dispose of them carefully, preferably by returning them to your pharmacy.
  • The single use vials of Viscotears eye gel should contain enough gel to treat both eyes if required. Once you have applied the drops you should throw away the vial, even if some gel remains.
