HYLO NIGHT® (formerly VitA-POS®)

Identical in every way to VitA-POS, apart from the name, HYLO NIGHT® is a preservative & phosphate free, dry eye ointment that is recommended for night-time use and provides protection of the ocular surface and tear film for up to six hours. It is particularly effective in combination with daytime use of our HYLO® range of preservative & phosphate free eye drops, a regime which has been tried and tested successfully by patients.

The Benefits of Preservative Free Drops
  • Benzalkonium chloride (BAK) is the most frequently used preservative in preserved eye drops. BAK can induce corneal and conjunctival epithelial cell apoptosis, damage corneal nerves, delay wound healing, interfere with tear film stability and cause loss of goblet cells.3
  • The negative symptoms experienced through the use of BAK-preserved drops may impact adherence to the prescribed treatment or management regime.4
  • Preservative-free tear replacement is preferred in cases of frequent and chronic application.5
  • Patients with Dry Eye Disease (DED), especially those with severe DED who require dosing over 4 times daily with lubricants or who use ocular lubricants in conjunction with other chronic topical therapies such as glaucoma medications, should avoid the use of ocular lubricants containing preservative.3
