About the product Optixcare Eye Lube
Optixcare Eye Lube is an ideal product for use within a clinic as routine protection provided to eyes during anesthetic. As well, this product is an economical and effective tool for use as part of the multi-pronged approach to dealing with "dry eye".
The key ingredient in Optixcare Eye Lube is the carbomer gel. Carbomer gel brings a viscosity to the gel which causes it to remain on the cornea for an extended period of time. This viscosity allows for control of the drop applied which makes it easy to apply. Optixcare Eye Gel becomes more liquid immediately on contact with the salt in the tears of the eye.
Unlike mineral oil or petroleum based eye ointments, Optixcare Eye Lube is formulated with a sterile water base. Because of the water base and the gel viscosity only one drop per eye of Optixcare Eye Lube is needed. The frequency of application will depend on the veterinarian's direction and the pet owner's capability but the Eye Lube is very safe and non-irritating
