Hycosan Original Information
What is Hycosan Original?
Hycosan Original are preservative-free eye drops that contain a naturally occurring solution of 0.1% Sodium Hyaluronate used to calm and soothe irritation caused by mild to moderate dry eyes.
These lubricating eye drops can be used for up to 6 months after they have first been opened and are the perfect choice for anyone that suffers from irritation due to day-to-day wear of contact lenses.
What is Hycosan Original used for?
Symptoms of dry eyes are a common complaint that can range from mild itching, irritation and stinging to redness, blurred vision and light sensitivity. Hycosan Original eye drops help to lubricate the surface of the eye to settle these symptoms to leave your eyes feeling more comfortable.
If you are unsure if you are suffering from symptoms of dry eyes it is recommended that you discuss these with a doctor or pharmacist to ensure you get the right treatment for you.
How does Hycosan Original work?
Hycosan Original lubricating eye drops contain 0.1% of the ingredient Sodium Hyaluronate. This substance occurs naturally in the body and when used to treat dry eyes it hydrates the tear film over the surface of the eye helping to soothe irritation and protect them from further moisture loss.
