Description for Hycosan Dual Eye Drops

Hycosan Dual are dual-action eye drops for children and adults over the age of 6 years to help relieve irritation caused by dry eyes and reduce inflammation and allergic reactions, by stabilising the lipid layer within the tear film. 

Hycosan products are available to buy online from The Independent Pharmacy with hassle-free delivery to your door.

    Maximum per order: 6

  • Pregnancy: Suitable

What is Hycosan Dual?

Hycosan Dual are lubricating eye drops that help to soothe dry eyes and calm itching, burning and irritation. Hycosan Dual are an ideal choice for people who suffer from lipid deficient dry eyes or Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, which prevents the production of oil within tears. 

Each 7.5ml bottle of Hycosan Dual contains Sodium Hyaluronate to help moisturise the eye and Ectoin to prevent tears evaporating, creating further moisture loss, and to protect the eye against inflammation and allergens. 

Like other Hycosan products, these eye drops are preservative-free and can be used for up to 6 months after opening. They are also compatible for use with both hard and soft contact lenses. 

 

What is Hycosan Dual used for and how does it work?

Hycosan Dual eye drops offer relief from symptoms of dry eyes that may be caused by lipid deficiency or Meibomian Gland Dysfunction.

Our eyes rely upon a specific environment to remain calm and comfortable. The surface of the eye is made up of 3 thin layers known as a tear film. The outer layer is a lipid or oil layer that prevents moisture evaporating out of the eyes or tears continuously rolling down our cheeks. 

In cases where the lipid layer is damaged the eyes are more susceptible to drying, irritation and inflammation. Hycosan Plus contains Ectoin, which helps to stabilise the tear film by adding oil back into the eye, protecting against allergens, inflammation and tear evaporation.

Hycosan Dual dosage

Hycosan Dual eye drops are for use in the eyes only by children and adults over the age of 6 years. Do not swallow. 

Insert 1 drop to the affected eye or eyes 3 - 4 times a day. Most people will find this offers adequate comfort and healing, but they can be used more frequently if needed. 

Hycosan Dual is suitable for long term use, however, if you are needing to use it more than 10 times a day to control your condition you should speak to a doctor for advice. 

 

How to use Hycosan Dual

    1. Wash your hands before and after use.
    2. Remove the cap from the bottle.
    3. Tilt your head back slightly and pull your lower lid down to form a pocket.
    4. Place your thumb at the top next to the applicator tip and 2 fingers on the base,
    5. Hold the bottle upside down near to your eye, without touching your eye. Apply pressure to the bottle to release one drop.
    6. Close your eyes for 1 minute to help the drop absorb.
    7. Repeat in the other eye and then replace the cap. 

If you are using other eye medication at the same time as these drops, you should wait 30 minutes before applying Hycosan Dual. 

Please make sure you follow the directions for use that are printed on each box. If you have, however, been prescribed these Hycosan by a doctor you should follow the instructions they have given to you.

Hycosan Dual side effects

In very rare circumstances, some people may experience stinging, or a burning sensation and the eyes may become more watery than normal when using this product. If this occurs, stop using it straight away. If your symptoms do not improve, speak to a doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Hycosan Dual ingredients

Each bottle of Hycosan Dual contains: 0.05% sodium hyaluronate, 2% ectoin, borate buffer and water.
