CoQ10 is one of two key ingredients in VisuXL which works to provide lasting dry eye symptom relief and recovery to the damage caused by dry eye and eye surgery.
VisuXL is the only therapy which uses the patented technology combination of cross-linked hyaluronic acid (cross-linked HA) and Coenzyme Q10. When you administer a drop of VisuXL into your eye, the two ingredients work together on the eye’s surface to give you lasting relief from symptoms and support recovery of damage caused by dry eye and eye surgery.
CoQ10 supports recovery of the ocular surface and the cornea
When you have dry eye disease, the surface of your eye (commonly referred to as the ocular surface) may be damaged. The CoQ10 molecules in VisuXL re-energise the cells in the surface of the eye and protect them from harmful oxidative damage. Supporting their recovery means that not only does VisuXL relieve your dry eye symptoms, but actually helps the cells recover from the damage caused by the disease.1
Additionally, eye surgeries can aggravate or damage the ocular surface or cornea.2 In a study of patients following cataract surgery, the use of CoQ10 was associated with accelerated recovery of the ocular surface compared to treatment with a control.3
Cross-linked HA and CoQ10
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a common ingredient in eye drops due to its lubricating properties. It acts on the surface of the eye to give relief to dry eye symptoms. Most HA containing eye drops use linear HA, the HA in VisuXL is cross-linked and not linear.
When you drop VisuXL into your eye the cross-linked HA starts to work to relieve dry eye symptoms while simultaneously creating a lasting liquid matrix on the surface of the eye. The matrix holds the CoQ10 molecules in place. CoQ10 then gets to work re-energising the cells and protecting vulnerable cells from damage (oxidative stress).
The liquid matrix means VisuXL provides lasting relief from as few as two drops per day.4,5 VisuXL offers lasting symptom relief and supports recovery from the damage caused by both dry eye and eye surgery.
