Is Clinitas preservative free?
The prescription products Clinitas and Clinitas Multi, alongside Clinitas Soothe and Clinitas Soothe Multi are preservative free. Clinitas Gel, and its OTC alternative Clinitas Hydrate, are not preservative free. They both contain cetrimide, a mild preservative.
How long can the 10ml bottle provided with Clinitas Multi and Clinitas Soothe Multi be used for once opened?
3 months - The 10ml multi dose bottle uses the Novelia® bottle and its innovative delivery system. The eye dropper bottle allows our unique sodium hyaluronate 0.4% dry eye formulation to be truly preservative free and be used for up to 3 months once opened.
The dropper mechanism enables the patient to accurately administer single drops. The smooth and soft silicone tip is safer than some alternatives when close to the eye surface. Displaced volume is replaced by filtered air which enables us to use ZERO preservatives but still maintain complete sterility for 3 months.
Is the formulation in our various 0.4% Sodium Hyaluronate products the same?
Yes, the formulation in the prescription and over the counter products are the same (Clinitas, Clinitas Multi, Clinitas Soothe, Clinitas Soothe Multi).
The formulation is as follows.;
Sodium hyaluronate (4mg/ml, 0.4% w/v), dibasic sodium phosphate, monobasic sodium phosphate, sodium chloride and water for injection.
How often should I use the Clinitas Hot Eye Compress
Most patients should benefit from applying The Hot Eye Compress and performing eyelid massage (refer to Step 2 - Eyelid Massage Procedure) twice a day for two weeks. This can be reduced to once a day and then a couple of times a week as required, once symptoms have been alleviated.
