While we are asleep, no tears are produced. If you suffer from dry eye, this can lead to a painful awakening, resulting in the eyelids sticking together and unpleasant incrustations forming. The conjunctiva and the skin of the edges of the eyelids can also become irritated and inflamed due to friction.
What is VitA-POS eye ointment?
VitA-POS is a preservative-free ointment containing vitamin A to help protect the cornea and conjunctiva during the night and to aid regeneration. Due to its smooth, gel-like texture VitA-POS moisturises your eyes in an optimal way while you are asleep. Furthermore the eye lids are kept smooth and crusting around the eye is prevented.
VitA-POS eye ointment remains in the eye for up to 6 hours, enabling optimal moisturisation during the night. VitA-POS eye ointment can be used for up to 6 months after first opening.
Who can use VitA-POS eye ointment?
VitA-POS eye ointment is suitable for adults and children of all age groups and can also be used during pregnancy and breast-feeding.
VitA-POS is ointment based and designed for night time use, and so should not be used while wearing contact lenses.
Please ensure you take out your lenses before using VitA-POS and wait for at least 15 minutes after treatment before putting them back.
Vitamin A is required for normal growth maintenance and maturation of corneal epithelium and is therefore effective in the treatment of xerophthalmic and "experimental" corneal wounds when applied topically

Directions for use:
