DID YOU KNOW OUR SKIN IS HOME TO A WIDE ARRAY OF BACTERIA, FUNGI & VIRUSES 1

Our bodies naturally harbour a multitude of germs. While some of the microorganisms on the skin surrounding your eyes are beneficial, if invading bacteria, viruses or fungi begin to over-populate, they can contribute to a number of eye and skin related conditions2.
The use of Hypochlorous Acid has been shown to reduce harmful bacteria, fungi & viruses on eyelids and surrounding skin 2.

How OPTASE® Protect Works

OPTASE® Protect offers the unique benefits of Hypochlorous acid

In the body Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is produced naturally by white blood cells as the first line of defence against harmful germs.

HOCl is a powerful molecule that is effective against invading bacteria, fungi, and viruses, but is pH balanced, meaning it’s gentle on the most sensitive skin. Simply spray on morning and evening, and let the spray take action.

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
