Nappanee Family Eyecare offers several lubricants and antihistamines, available to purchase in office, for those who suffer from symptoms from dry eye and ocular allergies.
Dry Eye Ointments and Drops
Soothe products are fast acting lubricants to help restore the lipid layers of tears. It is proven that when looking at electronics for an extending time, blinking becomes less frequent and results in a faster development of dry eye symptoms. Soothe XP offers extended relief for optimal ocular comfort and vision throughout the day for those who suffer with mild to severe dry eye.
FreshKote helps restore and replenish the lipid layer to stabilize the tear film and delay evaporation. This superior dry eye lubricant is unlike any other dry eye product on the market. FreshKote is specifically designed for the temporary relief of discomfort from exposure to wind and sun.
Oasis TEARS PF
Oasis TEARS PF is a uniquely formulated to give you instant relief and long-lasting comfort from dry eye. With every blink, the preservative-free formulation protects and moistens the surface of your eyes. Preservative-free Oasis TEARS eliminate the source of toxic irritation caused by preservatives. Preservative-free (PF) may be the best choice for patients immediately following eye surgery, because they are more comfortable to use, due to differences in the thickness and improved compatibility with the eye’s tissues.
Retaine HPMC Lubricant Eye Drops is a preservative-free drop that provides immediate relief to soothe dry, irritated eyes by resembling natural tears. Utilizing a proprietary airless application system that prevents harmful bacteria from entering the bottle and contaminating the solution, Retaine HPMC enables delivery of multiple sterile doses to the eye without preservatives that can be damaging to the sensitive ocular surface. Most solutions intended for multiple uses require the addition of preservatives, but Retaine HPMC has a three-month stability after opening with guaranteed sterility.
Retaine PM is designed to keep eyes lubricated and comfortable while you sleep for those who suffer from dry eye. Retaine PM is a preservative-free, oil-based formula that is conveniently packaged in a 3.5gm tube. Recommended for nighttime use only due to the thickness of the oil-based formula causing blurred vision for several minutes.
Retaine NaFl Ointment
Retaine NaFL Ointment is a sodium chloride solution that provides temporary relief for corneal disorders such as recurrent corneal erosion and Fuchs’ Corneal Dystrophy.
Allergy Relief Drops
Alaway is an antihistamine eye drops that provide temporary relief for itchy eyes due to ragweed, pollen, grass, animal hair and dander. Alaway quickly stops the itch within minutes and provides up to 12 hours of symptom relief.
Redness Relief Drops
LUMIFY is an over-the-counter treatment option that can help relieve red, irritated eyes within a minute and offers up to eight hours of redness relief. LUMIFY works by selectively targeting redness, alleviating some of the risks associated with other redness relievers, including rebound redness, and loss of efficacy over time. Frequent use of redness-relieving eye drops that constrict blood vessels in the eye may cause patients to develop a tolerance or loss of effectiveness. LUMIFY, however, can lower this risk by selectively constricting veins in the eyes and increasing the availability of oxygen to the surrounding eye tissues.
