What is Bepanthen eye drop and when is it used?
Bepanthen eye drops form a sterile, preservative-free, viscoelastic, clear protective film for the cornea. They consist of natural, biological substances. This includes the sodium salt of hyaluronic acid, which due to its special physical properties forms an even, stable and particularly long-lasting protective film on the cornea without impairing visual performance. In addition, Bepanthen eye drops contain provitamin B5 (dexpanthenol), which has the ability to refresh and additionally care for the eyes due to its high water-binding capacity. This effectively supports the moisturizing properties of sodium hyaluronate.
The combination of sodium hyaluronate (tear film stabilizing) and dexpanthenol (caring, soothing) protects and moisturizes the surface of the eye and makes it slippery. As a result, it provides long-lasting relief from complaints associated with
- mechanical stress, e.g. caused by wearing hard or soft contact lenses or diagnostic procedures on the eye;
- environmental stress, e.g. caused by air conditioning , wind, cold, dryness or air pollution;
- strained eyes, e.g. when working on computer screens and on long car journeys.
Because they are free of preservatives, Bepanthen eye drops are particularly well tolerated, even with long-term use . Bepanthen eye drops are also suitable for contact lens wearers.
