Artificial Tears Eye Drop

Artificial Tears Eye Drop is used to treat the symptoms of dry and/or irritated eyes. Common causes of this condition are windy conditions, excessive use of computers, excessive reading, sunny weather, heating or air conditioning, and certain medications. It functions as an eye lubricant, keeping your eyes moist. This helps to protect the eye from infections and probable injuries, and alleviates the symptoms of dry eye syndrome, such as itching, burning, or the feeling that there is something in your eye.

This medicine is available in the form of eye drops and ointments for topical application. While using this medicine, do as directed by your doctor. It may be best to use the ointment before you go to bed, while you can use the eye drops as many times as you require during the day. The adverse effects caused by this medicine are usually temporary, and include blurred vision, and a burning or stinging or an irritating sensation in the eyes. If these symptoms persist, immediately inform your doctor. Also consult your doctor if you develop redness in your eyes, or if the initial adverse effects appear to persist. This medicine may be harmful if swallowed. Keep it away from children.
