CHARACTERISTICS AND MODE OF ACTION

VISMED® GEL MULTI contains sodium hyaluronate, a natural polymer, which is also present in the structures of the human eye. The particular physical characteristics of sodium hyaluronate confer to VISMED® GEL MULTI its viscoelastic and water retaining properties. VISMED® GEL MULTI provides a stable coating on the surface of the eye which is only slowly eliminated by blinking. Therefore VISMED® GEL MULTI combines long lasting relief with maximum com-fort. VISMED® GEL MULTI is well tolerated due to its unique composition. VISMED® GEL MULTI is free from preservatives.
