VisuXL is intended for use in the treatment of dry eye and to aid recovery following eye surgery

By using as few as two drops per day (or as directed by your doctor) VisuXL has demonstrated to improve the underlying damage caused by dry eye and provide lasting relief from dry eye symptoms.1,2,3,4

VisuXL and dry eye

VisuXL is suitable for all types of dry eye and all severities of symptoms (for more information on types of dry eye, visit What is dry eye page). A study conducted with patients aged 40 – 79 years old and suffering from dry eye compared the treatment outcomes of VisuXL and an alternative linear HA based treatment (an eye drop with linear HA is considered the standard dry eye treatment).1

VisuXL performed better than the alternate treatment in both reducing the signs (what a doctor will test for) and symptoms (what a patient experiences) of dry eye disease.1

The key highlights of this study are as follows:

  • In 3 months patients treated with VisuXL experienced a 4-fold reduction in corneal damage compared to the start of the study. Patients treated with the alternative treatment experienced no statistically significant change in corneal damage throughout the study.1
  • In 3 months patients treated with VisuXL compared to those treated with the alternative treatment reported an improvement in symptoms and their impact on vision related function and improved quality of life.1,6

With the long-lasting effects of the cross-linked HA, VisuXL is able to relieve the irritating symptoms of dry eye while simultaneously supporting recovery of underlying damage all from just two drops per day.1,2

VisuXL and surgery

While surgical procedures have greatly improved in recent years leading to quicker recovery time and fewer complications, with any ocular procedure there is the risk of surgery related damage or surgery induced dry eye.4,5 The study summarised above illustrates that VisuXL significantly reduces the symptoms of dry eye and supports the recovery of any underlying damage. For patients suffering from surgery-induced dry eye VisuXL may be used to treat symptoms while the area fully recovers.

Additionally, CoQ10 has demonstrated the ability to speed up the recovery time of post-surgical patients. In fact, in a clinical study the use of CoQ10 was associated with accelerated recovery of the ocular surface compared to treatment with a control (standard saline solution).4      

If you have any type of eye surgery coming up, be sure to ask your eye doctor if VisuXL is right for you.
