Retaine Artificial Tear Ointment

retaineDo you suffer from dry or irritated eyes? Retaine Artificial Tear Ointment may be your solution.

Retaine Artificial Tear Ointment is used for relief of severe dry and irritated eyes. It’s ideal to use at night before bed.

Dry or irritated eyes can be caused by many things in your environment. Outdoor elements like wind or sun play a role, as does air conditioning or heating, computer use/reading, and even certain medications. Retaine Artificial Tear Ointment is a lubricant to prevent further irritation and relieve dry eyes.

Before applying, remove contact lenses and make sure you wash your hands. To avoid contamination, be sure to avoid touching the tip of the ointment tube and don’t let the tube touch the eye. To apply, tilt your head back, look up and pull down the lower lid of the affected eye(s). Use a small amount (¼ inch) of ointment on the inside of the eyelid. Close your eyes for one to two minutes while slowly rolling your eye in all directions to spread the medication. Release your eyelid and blot away any extra ointment from around the eye with a clean tissue. Most people prefer to do this right before bed, as the ointment will blur the vision.

Retaine keeps the eye moist while you sleep, and decreases symptoms of dry eyes such as burning, itching, and feeling as if something is in the eye.

Most people experience no side effects to Retaine ointment, however, if you experience any signs of an allergic reaction such as hives, itching, redness, swelling, wheezing, etc. contact our urgent care immediately.
