The benefits of 0bricating eye drops

Based on the information you have given, you are apparently suffering from a severe form of dry eyes. We recommend that you use product HYLO®-GEL to treat your symptoms. This contains a highly viscous solution of particularly high-grade hyaluronan and is therefore ideal for severe symptoms. HYLO®-GEL is completely free from preservatives, emulsifiers and phosphates and therefore is suited to use immediately after operations on the eye. If you have not yet been treated by an eye doctor for the symptoms you are experiencing, we recommend that you also visit your eye doctor in order to exclude the presence of any accompanying diseases which may be the cause.

You can also improve the success of the treatment if you apply a smooth eye ointment such as VitA-POS® at night time. This prevents incrustations, which are produced at night time on the eyelid margin, from leading to irritation of the cornea and conjunctiva during blinking in the morning.


HYLO®-GEL lubricating eye drops have been developed for the special requirements of chronically dry eyes and for particularly severe cases of dry eyes.

The benefits of HYLO®-GEL at a glance:

  • Intensive and long-lasting eye lubrication due to 0.2% hyaluronan for severe and sustained symptoms of dry eyes
  • Supports the regeneration of the surface of the eye after operations
  • Prescription-free yet can be prescribed in cases of damage to the lacrimal gland, various autoimmune diseases, inability to close the eyelids completely (lagophthalmos) and facial nerve paralysis.
  • No impairment of vision
  • High yield of at least 300 drops
  • Simple to dispense thanks to the COMOD® system
  • Free from preservatives and phosphates

HYLO®-PROTECTEye drops work on several levels

Based on the information you have given, it can be concluded that the symptoms you are experiencing are caused by a change in the composition of the tear film. In your case, this most likely concerns the oil content of the tear film. Frequent watery eyes or discomfort, particularly in the morning, are an indication of this. We recommend that you use product HYLO®-PROTECT to treat your symptoms. This consists of a combination of high-grade hyaluronan and the natural substance ectoine. Ecotine has the capacity to stabilise, in a special way, the oil content of the tear film and is thus ideal for your symptoms. In addition, ectoine has strong water-binding properties through which a thick water barrier is created on the surface of the eye which also reduces symptoms caused by allergies. HYLO®-PROTECT is also particularly gentle on the eye as it does not contain preservatives, emulsifiers or phosphates.

You can also improve the success of the treatment if you apply a smooth eye ointment such as VitA-POS® at night time. This prevents incrustations, which are produced at night time on the eyelid margin, from leading to irritation of the cornea and conjunctiva during blinking in the morning.


HYLO®-PROTECT eye drops with hyaluronan and ectoine provide the eyes with lasting moistness and effectively protect them from irritants from the environment.

HYLO®-PROTECT lubricates the cornea and conjunctiva, and protects against excessive tear evaporation. The stabilization of the tear film – in particular the lipid layer – relieves eye irritation, which is associated with inflammatory symptoms, or which is caused by allergies. The burning and itchy feeling in the eyes disappears. Burning, itchy and watery eyes, the sensation of having sand in your eyes or dry eyes, are all symptoms of a dry and/or irritated eye. These are often an indication that the eye is not being supplied with enough moisture. Another reason can be hypersensitivity reactions to other substances (e.g. pollen, animal hair or household dust). As the symptoms of such allergies are the same as for dry eyes, it is difficult to decided if you are suffering from dry eyes or if your eyes are irritated due to the allergies.

An overview of the special properties of HYLO®-PROTECT eye drops:

  • Intensive lubrication for dry and irritated eyes
  • Stabilization of the lipid layer of the tear film
  • Lasting protection against renewed dryness
  • Supporting the body’s own barrier against germs, allergy-inducing substances and irritants.
  • Contain ectoine, which relieves inflammatory processes
  • Highly economical thanks to COMOD® system
  • Free from phosphates and preservatives

HYLO®-PROTECT eye drops are particularly well-suited to dry eyes with additional irritation due to hypersensitivity reactions. We recommend VitA-POS® eye ointment for care for irritated eyes during the night.
