Carbomer Eye Gel 0.2% w/w – 10g (Brand may vary)


GelTears is a clear colourless liquid gel and contains a lubricant that is used as a substitute for natural tears. Your eyes will normally produce just enough natural tears to allow them to move easily and comfortably. If your eyes do not produce enough tears they can become dry and irritated. It can also be used in patients who suffer from sore eyes because their tear film is unstable. GelTears will help keep your eyes comfortable.

What you need to know before you use GelTears

Do not use GelTears if you are allergic to any of the ingredients of this medicine (listed in section 6).

Other medicines and GelTears

If GelTears is used at the same time with other eye drops/eye ointments, there should be an application time interval of approximately 15 minutes between use of such other medications and GelTears should always be the last medication to be applied.

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, have recently or might take any other medicines.

Warnings and Precautions

Your vision may become blurred if too much gel is added at one time, or if you use your medicine more often than is required. This effect can last for up to an hour. If you are affected you may be able to speed up recovery of normal vision by blinking vigorously for a few seconds. If this does not work, try gently rubbing the eyelid.

This should help the gel to collect in the conjunctival sac beneath the eye where it will no longer interfere with your vision.

Children and adolescents aged to 18 years:

The safety and efficacy of GelTears in children and adolescents at the posology recommended in adults has been established by clinical experience, but no clinical trial data are available.

Pregnancy, breast-feeding and fertility

Do not use GelTears if you are pregnant, may be pregnant, or are breastfeeding.

Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Contact lenses

Take special care with GelTears if you wear contact lenses. Contact lenses should be removed during treatment with GelTears. And then wait for 15 minutes after application before putting them back in.

Benzalkonium chloride is used as a preservative in GelTears, and is known to be absorbed by soft contact lenses. Over time benzalkonium chloride can collect in soft contact lenses, and therefore may cause irritation, or discolour the lenses. Therefore use of Geltears while using soft contact lenses is not recommended. GelTears can, however, be used with daily disposable lenses because a new pair is used each day.

Driving and using machines

As with all eye preparations, you may have blurred vision for a little while after putting the gel in. Wait until your vision is clear before driving or using machines.
