Artelac is an aqueous artificial tear product for the treatment of all forms of dry eye.

What are Artelac Eye Drops used for?

Your drops contain the active ingredient hypromellose which acts as a lubricant to treat symptoms of dry eye. It is a soothing solution that is used as an artificial tear when the eyes are lacking in tears. Your eyes will normally produce just enough natural tears to allow them to move easily and comfortably.

If your eyes do not produce enough tears they can become dry, red and painful. Your drops keep the surface of the eye lubricated (moist) when production of tears is less than normal, and has a refreshing, cooling action.

The hypromellose in these drops increases the thickness of the solution which has a moisturising effect and helps the solution to stay in contact with your eye for a longer period of time. Artelac can be used by children, adults and the elderly

 

Artelac

  • Therapy of dry eye syndrome requires an individual dosage regimen.
  • Wearers of contact lenses should remove their lenses before Artelac is an administered and should wait at least 15 minutes before they insert them again.
  • Artelac ion installation may cause a short term blurring of vision when first used.
  • If affected, wait until vision has cleared before driving or operating machinery.

 

Dosage

Always use your solution exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you to. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. This medicine is only to be used as drops applied into one or both eye(s).

Dosage The usual dose is to apply 1 drop in the corner of the eye, nearest the nose, 3 to 5 times each day or as required to give enough lubrication. Ensure the dropper tip does not touch any surface including the eye surface. Dry eye is a condition that varies from person to person. Use the drops as often as you think necessary.
