What are some common symptoms of dry eye sensation?
Dry eye sensation can cause a range of symptoms including a gritty feeling in the eye, the sensation that there is something in the eye, itching, redness, blurry vision, and light sensitivity. These symptoms may be temporary or persist for longer periods of time, and can occur in one or both eyes. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to consult with an eye doctor to determine the underlying cause and appropriate treatment options.
What are common causes of dry eyes?
Dry eyes can be caused by a lack of balance in the tear-flow system or external factors like air conditioning and heating that dry out the tear film. The natural ageing process, menopause, and side effects of certain drugs like antihistamines can also lead to dry eyes. Additionally, diseases such as Sjogren's syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, and collagen vascular diseases that affect tear production, as well as problems with eyelid closure, can contribute to dry eyes.
When should Hylo-Forte be used?
Hylo-Forte is used for more severe or persistent cases of dry eye, in which a high level of lubrication and moisturization is needed. It contains a higher concentration of sodium hyaluronate, which creates a more viscous solution for providing intensive and long-lasting moisturization to the eye surface.
How do I apply Hylo-Forte?
To apply Hylo-Forte, first prime the system by removing the over cap, inverting the bottle, and pressing the base several times until the first drop is released. Hold the bottle with two fingers on the base and your thumb on the shoulder, with your head slightly leaned back. Pull down your lower eyelid and press the base to release one drop into the conjunctival sac, repeating for the other eye. Close your eye slowly to allow the fluid to spread evenly. Avoid contact between the bottle tip and your eye or skin. Ensure the tip is dry before replacing the over cap.
Is Hylo-Forte safe for use?
Hylo-Forte is considered safe due to its preservative-free and phosphate-free composition, making it well tolerated. The absence of phosphates also reduces the risk of complications due to the formation of insoluble deposits in the cornea.
How does Hylo-Forte work?
Hylo-Forte works by providing the eye with a regular, stable, long-lasting lubricating and moisturizing film, thanks to the presence of sodium hyaluronate, a natural substance found in many human organs including the eye. Its bioadhesive properties ensure that the cornea and conjunctiva are protected, and the eye lid slides smoothly over the eye surface. The higher concentration of sodium hyaluronate in Hylo-Forte makes it more viscous, providing an intensive and long-lasting moisturizing film to the eye.
