IRIDIUM® A

HYDRATION AND LUBRICATION IN IATROGENIC CHANGES OF OF THE OCULAR SURFACE

DESCRIPTION

Iridium® A is an ophthalmic solution useful for hydration and lubrication of the ocular surface in the presence of iatrogenic changes of the ocular surface, providing relief to possible disorders caused by topical drug treatments.

It contains hyaluronic acid sodium salt (FHA 1.0®), amino acids and Echinacea extract: hyaluronic acid is a mucopolysaccharide physiologically present in the human eye and has the property of adhering to the ocular surface by protecting and lubricating it; the Echinacea extract has antioxidant properties and, together with the lubricating action of hyaluronic acid, supports the restoring of the altered tear film; the amino acid formulation helps lubricate the ocular surface and improve the protection of epithelia subject to various kinds of stress.

The IRIDIUM®A free bottle is fitted with an OSD (Ophthalmic Squeeze Dispenser) dropper which, through its multilayer air filter and tip-seal valve system, ensures that the sterility of the product is maintained without preservatives.
