Hypromellose eye drops are also known as ‘artificial tears’. Hypromellose provides soothing relief for sore eyes from grit, itchiness and other foreign body irritations. Dry eye sensation may also be produced by the use of TV’s and computer screens, infrequent blinking, certain medical treatments including refractive laser eye surgery, atmospheric pollution and drying atmosphere e.g. air conditioning, central heating, wind and sun.
They are used to relieve eye dryness and soreness, particularly where the dryness is caused by a reduced flow of tears. They moisten, soothe and lubricate the surface of your eye, making it feel more comfortable.
Before you start using the eye drops, read the manufacturer’s printed information leaflet supplied with the pack. It will give you more information about using the drops and will provide a full list of the side-effects which you may experience.
Use one drop into the eye (or eyes) affected by dryness. Many people find it is sufficient to use the drops three or four times a day, but you can use the drops every hour if your eyes are very dry. If the drops have been prescribed for you, then follow the directions given by your doctor.
Please take care that the dropper doesn’t touch your eye, your fingers, or any other surface. This could contaminate the drops left in the bottle.
If you forget to use the drops at your ‘usual’ time, do not worry, just put them in when you remember. Do not ‘double up’ the number of drops you use to make up for forgetting to use them.
When first put in, eye drops may cause blurred vision. This should quickly clear. Make sure you can see clearly again before you drive and before using tools or machines.
If you are using any other eye drops or ointments, leave about ten minutes between applying each one. It is usually recommended that you use hypromellose last. This is so that the drops stay in contact with your eye and lubricate it for as long as possible.
Do not wear soft contact lenses while you are using the drops unless your doctor or pharmacist has advised you otherwise. This is because there is a preservative in many of the brands of hypromellose eye drops which can affect soft contact lenses.
