Treatment Options

Non-toxic & Natural Technology
One of the more recent technology in treating dry eyes is through the use of phospholipid liposomes to help repair the lipid layer of the eye. Phospholipid liposomes are delivered to the eyes through liposomal sprays.

What are Liposomal Sprays?

Liposomal sprays, like Ocuvers, contain soy lecithin, a phospholipid, which is encapsulated within microscopic spherical liposomal vesicles with an aqueous core (hyaluronic acid). Soy lecithin is an emulsifier, which due to its bipolar nature enables the water and oil layers of the eye to work together.

The liposomal spray delivers phospholipid to the eye, helping to repair the lipid layer, thereby reducing evaporation of watery layer of tear film (which constitutes 80% of dry eye causes)

Scientifically Proven

Evidence of Effectiveness of Liposomal Eye Spray

Research into the action of liposomal sprays mixed with a fluorescein dye solution onto closed lids illustrates how the sprayed-on solution reaches the lid margins and the tear film within a few minutes. After application to closed lids, and only a few blinks, fluorescein is visible in the tear meniscus [1]
Several studies [2,3,4,5] have confirmed the efficacy of Liposomal eye sprays, with results showing SIGNIFICANT
IMPROVEMENTS in tear film quality and dry eye symptoms.

Parameters that have shown improvements include:

Ocuvers Hyaluron Liposomal Dry Eyes Spray

Ocuvers spray contains phospholipids and hyaluronic acid which are useful to treat the different kinds of dry eyes. They help to stabilize the lipid layer and moisturize in cases of tear insufficiency.
