Bepanthen eye drops
Sodium Hyaluronate 0.15%
Bepanthen eye drops intended to protect, moisten and lubricate the surface of the eye for prolonged relief of discomfort associated with:
- mechanical stress, e.g., use with soft or hard contact lenses, or during diagnostic eye procedures.
- environmental stress, e.g. induced by air conditioning, wind, cold, dryness or air polluted by cigarette smoke for example.
- visual stress from intensive viewing, e.g. at computer terminals, microscopes or during prolonged operation of motor vehicles.
Sodium Hyaluronate, the sodium salt of the Hyaluronic acid, due to its physical properties, forms an even, solid and long-lasting protective shield for the eye's epithelial layer without impairing vision.
Dexpanthenol ( provitamin B5 ) , with the ability to bind a large quantity of water, moisturizes and cares the eye, on the one hand, and on the other hand, supports the Sodium hyaluronate to hold moisture.
The combination of Sodium Hyaluronate (tear film stabilizing) and Dexpanthenol (nourishing, calming) protects and moisturizes the eye surface and lubricates it.
