LIPITEARTM is a preservative free, unidose ophthalmic microemulsion*
helping to restore the proper microenvironment of the ocular surface, enhancing the physiological process of corneal re-epithelization following ocular surgery and reducing pain/burning sensation, blurred vision, feeling of foreign body, photophobia and lacrimation.
* Microemulsion is a composed of an aqueous phase and a lipid phase. The main components of the lipidic phase are the physiological constituents of the lachrymal fluid/tear film (phospholipids and medium-chain triglycerides). The submicroscopic lipid particles dispersed in the microemulsion protect the ocular surface by forming a thin lipid barrier very similar to the lipid layer naturally contained in the tear film.
LIPITEARTM is indicated for use after ocular surgery, after traumatic and spontaneous corneal erosions and in dry eye syndrome.
Phospholipids, medium-chain triglycerides, soybean oil, glycerin, disodium edetate, ɑ-tocopherol, purified water
When to apply LIPITEAR™
LIPITEARTM is a unidose ophthalmic microemulsion, preservative free.
Generally LIPITEARTM is intended to be used for the treatment of ocular surface disorder in order to sooth its symptoms which the patient usually notices as very uncomfortable, and to enhance corneal repair.
Symptoms may include discomfort or pain, redness, itching and blurry vision. LIPITEARTM helps restore the proper microenvironment of the ocular surface which has been damaged due to traumas, ocular surgery, and instability of the tear film or an increased tendency to evaporation.
Thanks to its unique composition, LIPITEARTM is more effective than other products based on hyaluronic acid in reducing signs and symptoms in patients who are suffering from dry eye.
LIPITEARTM enhances the physiological process of re-epithelization in term of the rapidity and quality of the newly formed corneal epithelium by restoring a physiological microenvironment, modulating cholesterol metabolism and reducing microtraumas caused by blinking.
