Exclusively available in the UK through Grafton Optical, I-DROP® Viscoadaptive Tears with hyaluronic acid (HA) by I-MED Pharma are the newest additions to Grafton’s comprehensive range of Dry Eye Disease diagnosis and treatment products.
I-DROP® viscoadaptive artificial tears are premium eye drops which effectively and quickly help to relieve dry eye symptoms.
I-DROP® combines the cohesive physical properties of viscoelastic hyaluronan, and the dispersive physical properties of a low molecular weight glycerin lubricant. Together, these biopolymers are responsible for the long-lasting comfort and relief that this unique product provides.
With I-DROP®, patients experience longer residence time without blurring or foreign body sensation. Separately, neither a standard HA-based cohesive viscoelastic eye drop, nor a traditional cellulose or PVA-based dispersive viscous eye drop offers the total benefits that are achieved in this uniquely formulated viscoadaptive eye drop.
Grafton Optical CEO David Thickens said of the launch, “The I-DROP range is exclusive to Grafton Optical in the UK and will not be available to buy in pharmacies or online. This provides a protected sales channel for optometrists and ophthalmologists recommending these products to their patients. Grafton will be able to offer customers a superior price advantage on this excellent range, which promote excellent coating and re-coating of the eye with every blink, delivering superior moisturising and lubrication.”
