Keeping an Eye on What Really Matters!

With HYLO®, you don’t have to sacrifice patient welfare to help save on prescribing budgets, so you can keep an eye on what really matters. 

See how HYLO-Tear and HYLO-Forte compare with other seemingly ‘cost saving’ eye lubricants in terms of:

    i) Average duration of scripts and

    ii) Annual costs to a PCN per patient:

Avoiding a 360o Switch

Real world PCN experience has shown that switching away from HYLO to other lower ‘cost saving’ eye lubricants has resulted in a switch back to HYLO’s due to increased usage and patient feedback.

Delivering Innovation With The HYLO® Range

High-quality
Ingredients

HYLO’s unique long chain hyaluronic acid profile offers patients prolonged symptom relief and comfort. This in combination with its unique delivery system makes it the UK’s number one prescribed sodium hyaluronate eye lubricant for the management of Dry Eye.1,2

Preservative
Free

The unique COMOD system ensures HYLO eye lubricants are Preservative and Phosphate Free. This means that HYLO can be used for up to 6 months after first opening, potentially reducing waste.

Unique COMOD
Bottle

Our Continuous Mono Dose System (COMOD) has been designed for precision and safety to provide 6 months sterility. Ensures you get 330* precise measured drops, giving patients the consistency they need to maximise adherence.

Contact Lens
Compatible

Did you know 13% of people in the UK wear contact lenses? A lack of preservatives means contact lens wearers can use HYLO without the need to remove their lenses for greater convenience and increased compliance.

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
