Innovation in Evaporative Dry Eye & MGD Management
Hycosan Shield® is a unique, preservative free lipid layer replacement eye drop for the management of evaporative dry eye and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). It consists of a single ingredient* that forms a shield on the outer surface of the tear film to protect against evaporation.

WHAT IS EVAPORATIVE DRY EYE?
Almost 90% of dry eye patients suffer from Evaporative Dry Eye. This form of Dry Eye occurs when there is an absence of the outer oily lipid layer, leading to evaporation of the aqueous layer. This in turn leads to a reduced tear film, exposing your eye to factors such as wind. This in turn leads to excessive watering, redness, grittiness and overall discomfort to the eye.
Hycosan Shield® offers improved tear film stability and symptom relief for those suffering with Evaporative DED and MGD
Significant improvement in OSDI and TBUT in both eyes, 5.9 second increase in TBUT across both eyes.
Long lasting relief: Evidence suggests Hycosan Shield® lasts for up to 4 hours.
