Mechanism Of Action
Side Effect Profile
Prior Approvals
Other Research
Common treatments for Dry Eye Syndrome (DES) primarily work by lubricating and hydrating the ocular surface to stabilize the tear film and reduce tear evaporation. Products like Systane Ultra Preservative-Free (PF) contain ingredients that mimic natural tears, providing a protective barrier that helps to relieve symptoms such as burning, itching, and redness. These treatments are crucial for DES patients as they help maintain ocular surface integrity, improve comfort, and prevent further damage to the eye, thereby enhancing overall quality of life.
