Dry eye disease is one of the most widespread eye conditions in the world. Over time, dry eyes can cause pain and discomfort and can increase the risk of eye infection, resulting in permanent life-changing damages.
Optimel eye drops are one of the most innovative eye drops in the market today and is well-known as an effective treatment for dry eyes. Made with pharmaceutical-grade honey, Optimel uses honey from bees of the Leptospermum species. This eye drop utilises the standardised and natural antibacterial property of honey to alleviate dry eye symptoms.
How Does it Work for Dry Eyes?
Made with 16.5% pharmaceutical-grade Manuka honey, Optimel eye drops are an ideal solution for patients with chronic dry eyes and should be used when no other treatment is working.
Manuka honey's active ingredient is called Methylglyoxal (MGO) which helps kill bacteria around the eyelids and stabilise the health of the surface of the eye by creating a microenvironment on the ocular surface. Within this microenvironment, the formula helps heal the surface of the eye and prevent further damage, made possible by the antibacterial properties of Manuka honey.
The product also supports eyelid hygiene. When applied to the eyelid margin, the low pH environment helps limit bacterial growth. Crusts that may form in the margin of the eyelid with the presence of the formula are more likely to be soft and soluble. With this, Optimel products also help treat inflammation around the meibomian glands.
