Finally – Unique eye drops which stimulate the production of all three tear film layers while supporting the health of the cornea, conjunctiva and eyelid. Both formulas share five powerful broad spectrum ingredients which relieve symptoms caused from inflammation due to aqueous deficiency, including severe dryness such as with Sjogren’s Syndrome. Additionally, women experience more dry eye symptoms due to hormonal fluctuations so we added the two most commonly prescribed ingredients for these symptoms.
Dry eye is a chronic condition expressed as the body’s inability to produce any of the components of the three film layers or to maintain cell health on the corneal surface. Our strategy is to stimulate and support the body’s tissues, organs and functions which produce a healthy tear film and maintain corneal health. This should be the primary treatment strategy, and results should be analyzed before considering punctal plugs, artificial tears or chemical anti-inflammatories. The patient should also take adequate amounts of Omega 3, 6 & 9 essential fatty acids, drink plenty of water and take good quality nutraceuticals.
