Lacrisert uses and description

Sort by popularity
Lacrisert - There are many brands and forms of ocular lubricant available and not all are listed on this leaflet.

Ocular lubricant is a solution specially formulated to moisten the eyes.

Ocular lubricant is used to relieve burning, irritation, and discomfort caused by dry eyes.

Ocular lubricant may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Lacrisert (cellulose, 2-hydroxypropyl ether) is a derivative of cellulose with both water solubility and organic solubility. Lacrisert acts to stabilize and thicken the precorneal tear film and prolong the tear film breakup time which is usually accelerated in patients with dry eye states. Lacrisert also acts to lubricate and protect the eye. Lacrisert usually reduces the signs and symptoms resulting from moderate to severe dry eye syndromes, such as conjunctival hyperemia, corneal and conjunctival staining with rose bengal, exudation, itching, burning, foreign body sensation, smarting, photophobia, dryness and blurred or cloudy vision. Progressive visual deterioration which occurs in some patients may be retarded, halted, or sometimes reversed.

Indication: Used to relieve dryness and irritation caused by reduced tear flow that occurs in certain eye diseases (keratoconjunctivitis sicca), recurrent corneal erosions, decreased corneal sensitivity, exposure and neuroparalytic keratitis, and as a lubricant for artificial eyes.
