Topical Solutions/Creams, Eye Lubrication
Definition : Ophthalmic solutions and creams designed for lubrication of the eyes. These products frequently resemble the composition of natural tears; they may also include components (e.g., mineral oils, polymers such as sodium hyaluronate) intended to alleviate severe ocular dryness, thereby increasing eye comfort. Some of these solutions may be used by contact lens wearers without damage to the lens. A few drops of eye lubricating solution, liquefied gels, or ointments are usually applied on each eye. Eye lubrication solutions and creams are intended only for temporary local relief of ocular discomfort.
