While we are asleep or in the state of unconsciousness no tears are produced. Therefore, those already affected by dry eyes could have a painful awakening as during the night the eyelids may become stuck together. Furthermore, unpleasant incrustations can form on the eyelid margins. Consequently, the friction occurring during first opening of the eyes can lead to an irritated and inflamed cornea, conjunctiva as well as eyelid margin.
VitA POS® prevents drying out of the ocular surface
The smooth, vitamin A-containing ointment protects the cornea, conjunctiva as well as the eyelid margins during the night and stabilises the tear film. The eyelids are kept smooth and incrustations are prevented, therefore permitting a complication-free healing of the affected ocular tissues. This will benefit all patients suffering from dry eyes regardless of the severity of the disease.
Preservative and phosphate free
The high viscosity of eye ointments means that the retention time on the ocular surface is significantly longer compared to eye drops. Therefore, eye ointments in particular should not contain harmful excipients such as preservatives or phosphates. VitA POS® eye ointment is preservative and phosphate free and therefore presents no risk of harmful effects on the cornea and conjunctiva.
VitA POS® eye ointment is the night time care for dry, stressed eyes and is particularly well-suited for all those who suffer in the morning from incrustations and residue on the eyelid margin. What is special aboutVitA POS®eye ointment:
Intensive care and regeneration for dry, irritated eyes
Prevents the eyelids sticking together during sleep and protects the surface of the eye
Used overnight (more on the use of eye ointments)
With vitamin A
Free from phosphates and preservatives
VitA POS® eye ointment has been developed to meet the needs of dry eyes and can prevent unpleasant scratching when opening your eyes in the morning. VitA POS® eye ointment is particularly well-suited to use during sleep. During the day, we recommend lubricating eye drops such as HYLO COMOD® or HYLO® GEL.
VitA POS® meeting the needs of dry eyes
VitA POS® eye ointment provides intensive care and lasting protection for irritated, dry eyes and supports the natural tear film with vitamin A. The smooth ointment spreads itself gently all over the surface of the eye so that the cornea and the conjunctiva can optimally regenerate overnight. VitA POS® eye ointment prevents the surface of the eye from drying out as well as the build-up of incrustations during sleep. That way, your eyes feel well rested and protected when you wake up – right from the first time you open your eyes.
Are your eyes dry when you wake up? VitA POS® eye ointment is just what you need!
Quite often, people with dry eyes suffer with symptoms most after waking up: this is because the eyes produce hardly any lacrimal fluid during sleep and there is not enough lubricating tear film in the morning. The eyelids can stick together and the eyelid margins can have crusty remnants on them, which rub on the cornea when you blink, thus causing painful symptoms. Morning problems with the cornea, conjunctiva or eyelid margin can be prevented by using VitA POS® eye ointment the evening before.
People who suffer from burning, irritated or reddened eyes during the day can also benefit from using VitA POS® eye ointment in the evening. Wearing contact lenses, the impact of environmental irritants or working too long at a monitor dry out the eyes. By using VitA POS® eye ointment during your sleep, your eyes can sustainably regenerate and regain their moisture. During the day, the supplementary use of lubricating eye drops is optimal. That way, your eyes are protected around the clock from drying out.
Stabilises the tear film and protects the surface of the eye
VitA POS® eye ointment was especially developed to meet the demands of dry eyes. It contains the ingredient vitamin A (retinyl palmitate) which is also contained in natural lacrimal fluid. VitA POS® eye ointment therefore supports the recovery of stressed eyes.
The ointment stabilises the tear film and spreads like a constant, oily protective film over the complete surface of the eye. The ointment reliably cares for the cornea, conjunctiva and eyelid margins and thus provides lasting protection. VitA POS® is free from preservatives and phosphates, which can adversely affect the health of the eye.
