I-DROP PUR

This product is suggested for people who have mild to moderate dry eye disease and are searching for enhanced relief and comfort for their dry eyes. But what makes this product unique from the others?

I-DROP PUR has a viscoadaptive feature since it includes 0.18% HA, which has been combined with glycerin. It has a greater hydration capacity and helps to maintain the lipid layer of the tear film, which provides the patient with more comfort than other options. The complex one-way valve distributes one sterile dosed drop at a time, ensuring that no product is wasted and that there is no possibility of the product re-entering the container during use. This antibacterial tip guarantees that each drop is delivered in a safe and hygienic manner. There is a distinct blue tip that allows the patient to easily “target” the drop to apply it without missing.

  • Advantages:
  • Preservative-Free
  • Relief that is both immediate and long-lasting
  • Superior comfort
  • When applied, there is no blurring
  • Medication expenses will be lower as a result of the fewer applications needed
  • Compatible with contact lenses

I-DROP PUR GEL

I-DROP PUR GEL is advised for individuals who have been diagnosed with moderate to severe chronic dry eye syndrome and are searching for the more aggressive treatment for their dry eyes. 
 

Why should you opt for I-DROP PUR GEL? I-DROP PUR GEL has a viscoadaptive characteristic due to the presence of 0.30% HA and the addition of glycerin. Because of this formulation, the drops may migrate back and forth across the surface of the eye with each blink, resulting in a longer duration in the eye than with other formulations. The one-way valve, like I-DROP PUR, delivers just one sterile, dosed drop at a time, and the antibacterial tip ensures that each drop is given in a sterile environment. 

Advantages: 

  • Preservative-Free
  • Immediate relief that is long-lasting
  • Excellent moisturizing and lubricating properties
  • No blurring effects after use
  • Lower expenses cost as a result of fewer drops needed

I-DROP MGD is a premium artificial tear that is also free of preservatives and helps to alleviate the
symptoms of evaporative dry eye disease (EDE). It is the most technologically sophisticated eye
drop for moisturizing and lubricating the cornea that is available today on the market.

A viscoadaptive hyaluronan concentration of 0.20% is included in the formulation, as well as
superior osmoprotectants and bioprotectants, which help to sustain and increase the lipid layer
while decreasing evaporation of the tear film during use. Patients benefit from the unmatched ocular hydration and comfort provided by this innovative formulation. As a long-lasting artificial tear that covers the surface of the eye with each blink, it results in a reduced treatment cost to the patient and requires fewer daily applications, resulting in a lower therapy cost to the patient.

  • Advantages:
  • Preservative-Free
  • It contains osmoprotectants and bioprotectants
  • Stabilizes and increases the lipid layer, providing unmatched hydration and comfort to
    the eye and skin in the surrounding area
  •  Evaporation of the tear film is reduced
  •  Re-coating that is actuated by blinking
  •  Reduced treatment expenditures as a result of the requirement for fewer application
    sessions

In summary the best eye drop for you depends on the root cause of your dry eye.  Its best to speak to your eye doctor to determine which treatment plan is best for you.  If you experience dry eye symptoms, remember to bring them up at your next eye exam.
