CHARACTERISTICS AND MODE OF ACTION:

VISMED® 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® its visco-elastic and water retaning properties. VISMED® provides a stable coating on the surface of the eye which is only slowly eliminated by blinking. Therefore VISMED® combines long lasting relief with maximum comfort. VISMED® is well tolerated due to its unique composition. It is free from preservatives.

PRESENTATION:

20 single-dose containers of 0.3 ml.
