EvoTears® - unique in the treatment of dry eyes caused by a lipid phase disorder.
What is a lipid phase disorder? In almost 60 % of cases, dry eyes are exclusively caused by a lipid phase disorder, i.e. an unstable or deficient lipid or oil phase of the tear film. This phase marks the outermost layer of the tear film forming a boundary to the environment. Its task is to counteract premature evaporation of the tear and to stabilise the aqueous phase of the tear film.
A lipid phase disorder results in an increased evaporation of the underlying aqueous phase and thus dry eyes. However, due to the destabilisation of the aqueous phase, watery eyes can also occur.
Typical symptoms associated with a lipid phase disorder are:
- Watery eyes
- Burning sensation
- Symptoms predominately in the morning and improving throughout the day
Causes of a lipid phase disorder are e.g.:
- Use of digital media
- Current of air or air conditioning
- Office Eye Syndrome
- Unfavourable climatic influences/conditions
Tear substitutes are used as a basic treatment for dry eyes, whereby purely hydrating eye drops have no direct influence on an existing lipid phase disorder. With EvoTears® an unprecedented therapeutic class in the treatment of dry eyes has been available since 2015.
EvoTears® – unique lipid replacement for dry eyes: innovative, lipophilic, water-free – Made in Germany. Takes over the function of the lipid phase by forming a protective layer over the tear. Effective protection against evaporation for satisfied patients. No need for additives.
Consult with your doctor before use.
Step 1. Wash your hands before use. Step 2. Unscrew the cap from the bottle and remove the locking ring before first use. Step 3. After removing the cap, you should avoid touching the tip of the dropper in any way. Step 4. Please read and follow steps 5 and 6 before applying the vial to the eye. Step 5. Hold the open bottle with the dropper tip pointing up and gently squeeze the bottle. Step 6. Before bringing the vial to the eye, turn the vial upside down and release the pressure on the vial immediately. Air will penetrate the liquid into the vial. Keep the vial in this position, i.e. with the dropper tip pointing downwards. Step 7. Tilt your head back slightly and gently pull the lower eyelid away from the eye. If possible, look slightly upwards. Step 8. Hold the inverted open vial upright over the eye. Now the vial slightly squeeze and drip one drop into each eye. Warning: due to the special properties of EvoTears®, you may not feel the drop in your eye. For this case, it is recommended to use before mirror. Step 9. Do not touch the eye or eyelashes when using the dropper tip. Step 10. To disperse EvoTears® drops evenly, close your eyes after application. Step 11. After use, close the bottle with the cap again.
