Artelac Eye Drops Preservative Free Single Dose, 30’s

What is Artelac Eye Drops Preservative Free Single Dose?

Artelac Eye Drops Preservative Free Single Dose contains hypromellose as the active ingredient, which is a form of cellulose.

They are used to treat the symptoms of “dry eye”, which is a dehydration of the surface of the eye because no natural tears are being produced. Dry eye can also be caused if it is not possible to close your eyelids partly or completely.

Artelac lubricates eyes to calm and relieve the symptoms of chronic tear dysfunction such as burning, tired, gritty, blurry and or excessively tearing eyes.

Your drops are used as a tear substitute and lubricant when applied to the eye.

The hypromellose in these drops increases the thickness of the solution which has a moisturising effect and helps the solution to stay in contact with the eye for a longer period of time.

What is Dry Eyes?

Many people get dry eyes. It’s not usually serious and there are things you can do to help.
