Viscotears liquid eye gel makes your eyes more comfortable when they feel dry. It's especially effective on sore, burning, irritated, and dry eyes. It contains the active ingredient Carbomer, a synthetic polymer that forms a viscous eye gel. This leaves a transparent, lubricating, and moistening film on the surface of the eye known as ‘artificial tears.' It also treats dry eye conditions, including keratoconjunctivitis sicca, by clinging to the surface of the eye and not washing out of the eye as quickly as some other lubricating eye drops. These soothing drops are perfect for those who struggle with dry eyes and use contact lenses, aggravating dry eyes. If you do wear contact lenses, you can use these eye drops, but you’ll need to remove them before using this product. Once you’ve used these eye drops, wait for at least 15 minutes before putting your contact lenses back in. It's worth mentioning that Viscotears eye gel features the ingredient cetrimide – which can discolour soft contact lenses.
