Instructions for Use 

NAME OF PRODUCT:

VISMED® WASH
Sodium hyaluronate from fermentation 0.075%.
Rinsing solution for the eye. For external use only.

INTENDED USE:

For irrigation, rewetting and lubrication of the eyes or contact lenses in cases of discomfort or visual complaints related to various ocular surface disorders (including dry eye conditions). VISMED® wash can be particularly useful in helping to flush away debris, abnormal secretions, foreign bodies, allergens or chemical agents.

COMPOSITION:

Each 1mL of solution contains: sodium hyaluronate 0.75 mg, sodium chloride, disodium-hydrogenphosphate, sodium-dihydrogen phosphate, purified water, disodium edetate and polyhexanide as preservatives.

CONTRA-INDICATIONS:

Individual hypersensitivity to any of the constituents of the product.

INTERACTIONS:

Do not use VISMED® wash at the same time as any other drug or product which is applied to the eye since it may modify their effects.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

Twist the screw cap on the multidose container firmly clockwise, before using VISMED® wash for the first time: a spike in the screw cap will pierce the tip of the dropper bottle. Unscrew the screw cap and position the tip of the container above the eye that is to be treated: upon applying slight pressure to the bottle, VISMED® wash will easily flow out from the container. If not otherwise recommended, rinse the cornea and/or conjunctiva with VISMED® wash as often as needed: a few drops per eye are sufficient for removing debris whereas the total contents of one bottle may be needed for flushing away chemicals or foreign bodies. VISMED® wash may also be used while wearing contact lenses (rigid or soft) or scleral lenses. The solution can be used for a maximum of three months after the bottle has been opened.

PRECAUTIONS FOR USE:

Do not touch the tip of the opened bottle and do not touch the surface of the eye with the tip of the container. Do not use VISMED® wash if the container is damaged. Store between 2 and 25°C! Do not use VISMED® wash after the expiry date indicated on the package. If the discomfort persists while using VISMED® wash or reappears after discontinuation of treatment, consult a physician. Keep out of the sight and reach of children!

CHARACTERISTICS AND MODE OF ACTION:

VISMED® wash contains sodium hyaluronate, a natural polymer, which is also present in the structures of the human eye. The particular physical characteristics of sodium hyaluronate provide the typical visco-elastic and water retaining properties of VISMED® wash. VISMED® wash is well tolerated due to its unique composition. The particular composition of preservatives in VISMED® wash guarantees the sterility of the solution in the open container for a period of three months.
