How it works

Specially formulated with cross-linked sodium hyaluronate (0.4%) so that your eye drops stay in place for longer where they are needed, and you can get on with life with fewer interruptions.

Sodium hyaluronate explained
It’s a type of moisturiser, known as a humectant, naturally found in the body. Humectants work by attracting moisture – you can think of them a bit like a super sponge! Sodium hyaluronate occurs naturally in our synovial fluid – it’s the thick liquid that lubricates your joints and keeps them moving smoothly – and in the eyes and skin. Sodium hyaluronate is used widely, including in the treatment of ulcers, wounds and in skincare and cosmetics.

Look for cross-linked
Some eye drops contain sodium hyaluronate, but this is not the same. Ocutears Hydro+ is formulated with the cross-linked version. The “cross-linked” part means that the molecules are connected in a special way that makes it better at staying in place where it’s needed.

You’ll never find preservatives in any of the Ocutears® formulations. That’s important. Find out why you should opt for preservative-free eye drops in our FAQ.

Easy application

Use Ocutears® Hydro+ for relieving symptoms of dry eye, including soreness, burning, stinging, sandy or gritty sensation, tired heavy or watery eyes, as well as dry eye symptoms caused by:

  • Prolonged exposure to sunlight;
  • Exposure to air-conditioned rooms;
  • Prolonged screen use;
  • Contact with cleansing agents;

Ocutears® Hydro+ could also relieve discomfort of the eye after eye surgery.

Instructions for use:

  1. Wash your hands before opening the bottle
  2. Tilt your head back and gentle squeeze 1 – 2 drops in each eye (make sure the pipette doesn’t touch your eye!)
  3. Use 1 or more times a day as directed by your doctor or pharmacist
  4. Close the cap and store somewhere dry and out of direct sunlight
  5. When you first open the bottle, set a reminder on your smartphone to replace it after 3 months. That’s because one bottle of Ocutears® Hydro+ lasts 90 days.
