New Artificial Tear Contains Osmoprotectants
Allergan plc has launched REFRESH REPAIR Lubricant Eye Drops, an over-the-counter artificial tear formulation, as part of its REFRESH portfolio. Designed to repair and protect the eyes from the harmful effects of dry eye and improve clarity of vision, REFRESH REPAIR contains carboxymethylcellulose, hyaluronic acid and osmoprotectants. These restorative osmoprotectants displace salt in the tear film to safeguard epithelial cells against hyperosmotic stress, thus helping to maintain the health of the ocular surface. REFRESH REPAIR is safe to use with contact lenses. Go to RefreshBrand.com.
