Altacor add new products to the popular Clinitas brand family

Altacor - August 20, 2019

Introducing Clinitas® 0.2%

All the benefits of the proven Clinitas range now expanded with a 0.2% Sodium Hyaluronate option to treat mild to moderate dry eye. Both Clinitas® 0.2% products are preservative free and suitable for use with contact lenses.

Dry eye is a common chronic condition, and the incidence increases with age. It is estimated to affect around 1 in 5 people aged over 45, and 1 in 3 over 65.
Risk factors for dry eye include ageing, digital screen use, the environment (office / car), certain prescription drugs, arthritis, menopause, tear quality and symptoms after post-refractive surgery.

Sodium hyaluronate is a substance that originates in mucomimetic solutions, with optimal lubricant properties due to the viscosity of the solutions, that result in a moisturising effect and stabilisation of the tear film.

The lubricating, moisturising and protective qualities of sodium hyaluronate relieve irritation, dryness, burning and foreign body sensation due to environmental factors (wind, sun, smoke and dry air), visual stress (excessive light and prolonged use of computers), or mechanical factors (contact lenses use and after ocular surgery) and provides long lasting relief.

Efficacy with economy

Altacor have launched this product range to cover the growing market need of treating first line, mild to moderate dry eye. Clinitas® 0.2% and Clinitas® Multi 0.2% are available as cost effective products for both the NHS and patients to buy.

The products will expand options for GPs and community pharmacists, with the aim of providing the NHS with cost saving, high quality products from a brand you can trust.

The product range gives patients choice.

Unit dose vials or multi dose bottle

Clinitas 0.2% is provided in cartons of 30 resealable vials. After the first dose the top of the vial is simply reversed and replaced.

The vial may then be re-used for up to 12 hours, making Clinitas 0.2% an economical and very convenient eye drop to use on the go and throughout the day. There are enough drops in each unit to last the day.

The Clinitas Multi 0.2% bottle is innovative, intuitive and user friendly. The eye dropper bottle allows our sodium hyaluronate 0.2% 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 more user friendly than some alternatives when close to the eye surface.

The new Clinitas 0.2% products are part of a wider range of dry eye solutions and blepharitis treatments from Altacor.

Other products include Clinitas® 0.4%, Clinitas® Gel and the Clinitas® Eye Compress.
