Artelac Hypromellose Eye Drops, 10ml

If you suffer from dry eye, you know how uncomfortable it can be. Your eyes may feel scratchy, irritated, and red. And when it’s bad, it can make it tough to focus on anything. Artelac Hypromellose Eye Drops can help.

This artificial tear solution contains the active ingredient hypromellose, which lubricates and soothes your eyes. It’s like putting in a refreshing drop of dew. Just a few drops can help relieve your dry eye symptoms so you can get back to your day.

And unlike some other brands, Artelac is preservative-free, so it’s gentle on your eyes. So why suffer from dry eye any longer? Try Artel

Your eyes will normally produce just enough natural tears to allow them to move easily and comfortably. If your eyes do not produce enough tears they can become dry, red and painful.

Your drops keep the surface of the eye lubricated (moist) when the production of tears is less than normal and has a refreshing, cooling action. 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 your eye for a longer period of time.

Artelac can be used by children, adults and the elderly.

The recommended dose is

The usual dose is to apply 1 drop in the corner of the eye, nearest the nose, 3 to 5 times each day or as required to give enough lubrication. Ensure the dropper tip does not touch any surface including the eye surface.

Dry eye is a condition that varies from person to person. Use the drops as often as you think necessary.

Directions for use

  • Wash your hands before using your drops
  • Sit down in front of a mirror so that you can see what you are doing
  • Wipe your eyes to clear any residual wateriness or discharge
  • Unscrew the cap from the bottle and check the dropper is clean
  • Pull your lower eyelid gently down, and then carefully place one drop inside the lower eyelid, in the corner nearest the nose (see picture)
  • Take care not to touch the dropper with your eye or fingers
  • Release the lower eyelid, and blink a few times to make sure the eye is covered by the liquid
  • Repeat the procedure for your other eye
  • When you have finished, put the cap back on the bottle tightly
