Why does the eye need to be lubricated?
The cornea is normally a moist surface designed to protect the eye. Several factors can contribute to drying of the cornea. When the cornea becomes dry it is reduced in its ability to protect the eye, and this important protective surface becomes prone to injury or defect - this is commonly seen during anesthesia or in dry eye conditions, such as KCS.
Dosing recommendations for Dry Eye Conditions:
Optixcare Eye Lubricant will not replace tear stimulating drugs, like Tacrolimus or Optimune. Optixcare Eye Lubricant is an excellent choice for adjunctive care in dry eyes. Because of it's superior ability to add prolonged, water based moisture to the eye, the patient will experience soothing relief to the effects of a dry eye. Due to it's unique Carbomer gel formulation, Optixcare Eye Lubricant can be given less often than competitive products on the marketplace. Optixcare Eye Lubricant can be used as often as required during waking hours guided by the severity of the dry eye condition.
Dosing Recommendations During Anesthesia:
Reductions of tear production during surgery are well documented for the dog and the horse.
The cat is unique, not closing their eyes during anesthesia, they require special attention to their cornea. As well, many drugs and inhalants used in anesthesia contribute to corneal drying. Providing a sterile, water based lubricant, such as Optixcare Eye Lubricant will diminish the occurrences of corneal injury resulting from anesthesia.
When Optixcare Eye Lubricant contacts the cornea, the gel drop expands to cover the cornea, becomes clear and more fluid-like. Because of this property only one drop per eye is recommended. Most routine veterinary surgical procedures are completed in under 30 minutes so a repeat of the lubricant is not usually necessary.
