OCUNOX® improves the tear film and protects the surface of the eye. Due to its particularly smooth texture, OCUNOX® gently moisturizes your eyes, stabilizes the tear film and prevents tears from evaporating while you sleep. OCUNOX® contains Vitamin A, a natural component of the tear film, that supports tolerance and helps ensure that the ointment mixes well with available tears to relieve the burning sensation of dry or tired eyes. OCUNOX® helps the eyelids slide easily over the surface of the cornea and conjunctiva, keeping the eyelids smooth and preventing crusting around the eye.
Why is preservative free and phosphate free important?
Preservatives can damage the cells of the eye surface, destroy the natural tear film and cause intolerance. Phosphates can form practically insoluble crystals due to the reaction with calcium (which is released from damaged cells of the eye surface) and can impair your vision. Modern eye drops and ointments used for dry eyes, particularly after eye surgery or injuries, should not contain phosphates. Because they stay long on the surface of the eye, it is particularly important that ointment-like eye preparations do not contain any harmful substances. OCUNOX® eye ointment is entirely free of preservatives and phosphates. Nonetheless, due to its unique formulation, OCUNOX® eye ointment can be used for up to 6 months after first opening.
