OcuSOFT’s Retaine HPMC lubricant eye drops will now be available in a patented multi-dose, preservative-free delivery system.
Rosenberg, TX-OcuSOFT’s Retaine HPMC lubricant eye drops will now be available in a patented multi-dose, preservative-free delivery system.
The new delivery system for the eye drops-a preservative-free hyporomellose ophthalmic solution (0.3%) that provides immediate relief to soothe dry, irritated eyes by resembling natural tears-utilizes a proprietary airless pump system that prevents harmful bacteria from entering the bottle and contaminating the solution.
“(The eye drops) remains the gold standard for patients with more demanding dry eye conditions,” said Stacy Foster, executive vice president of OcuSOFT. “However, for patients with less severe conditions, and where budget concerns exist, (the eye drops) with its multi-dose, preservative-free pump dispenser is ideal.
“A measured release 10 ml bottle contains 300 drops offer the benefit of preservative-free dosing without unit-of-use container cost,” Foster added.
The new system was also presented during SECO last week, and will again be shown during Vision Expo East next week in New York City.
