  • Any one use Hylo-forte eye drops?

    I have struggled with dry sore eyes and drops have had limited success, so am soon to try plugs. Though I have recently started using hylo-forte drops which contain 0.2% sodium hyaluronate. Any one else have success with this drop?

    It's one of the few drops I can tolerate that doesn't sting for me. Been using it regularly for months prescribed by ophthalmologist on NHS prescription and I do find it helpful. There's been a lot of studies that say it can help protect the eye surface.

    "Sodium hyaluronate of 0.1% and 0.3% reduces symptoms of ocular irritation and lengthens non-invasive break-up time in subjects with moderate dry eye more effectively than saline, in terms of peak effect and duration of action."
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15983814

    "At the initial visit the foreign body sensation was 80%, itching 68%, burning 58%, watering 38%, photophobia 38%, and feeling of dryness was 16%. At the 3rd visit the foreign body sensation decreased to 32%, itching to 32%, burning to 20%, watering to 12%, photophobia to 18%, and feeling of dryness to 14%. Sodium hyaluronate has a beneficial effect on the conjunctival epithelium in a well-defined and homogeneous population of patients with dry eye and can be considered useful for the treatment of dry eye."

    "Sodium Hyaluronate can provide a suitable alternate in the treatment of dry eye disease due to its reported efficacy on foreign body sensation, itching, burning, watering, photophobia and feeling of dryness."

    "The beneficial effect of sodium hyaluronate in corneal wound healing is likely to be related to rapid migration of cells leading to rapid wound closure."

      Thanks I have tryed hylo tear before but this wasn't effective enough. Have you ever tryed plugs? I am looking at trying them due to the limited success I have had with drops.

        My eye doctor went straight to Hylo Forte due to my severity. I did try Hylo Care and Hylo Dual but I was sensitive to the extra ingredients in them, everyone is different though.

        I do have lower tear duct plugs. They weren't a cure for me but I'm sure they do help to stop drops draining as quick. Others can find them a big relief so worth a try.

          Thanks did you go straight for the silicone plugs or the dissolvable ones first?
