Characteristics and mode of action:

VISMED® LIGHT 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® LIGHT its viscoelastic and water retaining properties. VISMED® LIGHT provides a stable coating on the surface of the eye which is only slowly eliminated by blinking. Therefore VISMED® LIGHT combines long lasting relief with maximum comfort. VISMED® LIGHT is well tolerated due to its unique composition. The particular composition of preservatives in VISMED® LIGHT guarantees the sterility of the solution in the open container for a period of 3 months.
