Tears Guard sterile Lubricant Ophthalmic Solution

Tears Guard belongs to the group of medicines known as artificial tears. It is used to relieve dryness and irritation caused by reduced tear flow. It helps prevent damage to the eye in certain eye diseases. Tears Guard may also be used to moisten hard contact lenses and artificial eyes. In addition, it may be used in certain eye examinations.

PRESENTATION AND COMPOSITION 

Dropper bottle of 10 / 15 ml.

Tears Guard contains a unique preservative, hypotonic, aqueous solution containing Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose 3 mg, Sodium chloride, Boric acid, Potassium chloride, Hydrochloric acid (for pH adjustment), Dequest 2060S and water for injections.

Preservative: Sodium perborate tetrahydrate.

PHARMACOLOGY

Tears Guard is preserved with sodium perborate. When in the dropper bottle, this generates a very low level of hydrogen peroxide (H202) concentration of approximately 60 parts per million (ppm) or 0.006% this amount is imperceptible within 1 minute of instillation, the H202 is completely broken down into simple water and oxygen by the eye’s naturally occurring enzymes including Catalase, Superoxide dismutase and Glutathione peroxidase.

The remaining oxygen and water are absorbed into the tear film leaving only the soothing relief of the lubricant HPMC (Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose 3 mg/ml).

No traces of preservative and no harmful chemicals remain.
