The innovation for dry eyes

Since 2015, EvoTears® eye drops have represented an unprecedented therapeutic class in the treatment of dry eyes. The first water-free drops in the treatment of dry eyes specifically address a compromised lipid layer. The latter is the sole underlying cause in almost 60 % of dry eye patients1, leading to an early evaporation of the tear film and thus to dry eyes.

In addition, EvoTears® are the first eye drops with the innovative ingredient perfluorohexyloctane. Thanks to perfluorohexyloctane, EvoTears® eye drops spread quickly and cover the tear like a protective layer. This prevents excessive evaporation and effectively relieves the discomfort of dry eyes.

Due to being water-free, EvoTears® does not need any additives. Tear substitutes are used as a basic therapy for dry eyes, whereby eye drops that apply moisture only have no direct influence on an existing compromised lipid layer. With EvoTears®, an unprecedented therapeutic class in the treatment of dry eyes caused by a compromised lipid layer has been available since 2015.

EvoTears®, the unique2 lipid replacement, convinces with its effectiveness and tolerability and is suitable for most dry eyes patients.

Digital media3 and dry eyes

What happens when you use digital media3?

Looking concentratedly

  • Reduced blinking frequency
  • Reduced lipid secretion into the tear film
  • compromised lipid layer, thus premature evaporation of the tear
  • Dehydration of the ocular surface
  • Dry eyes due to digital eye strain

How can EvoTears® help?

EvoTears® forms a protective layer over the tear
and

  • takes over the function of the lipid layer
  • counteracts premature evaporation
  • prevents dry eyes caused by using digital media3

EvoTears® benefits from

1. Perfluorohexyloctane

Thanks to the innovative substance perfluorohexyloctane EvoTears® is lipophilic and yet has the same refractive index as the tear. This means that vision is not impaired. Perfluorohexyloctane has further advantageous properties previously unknown in dry eye therapy. EvoTears® spreads very quickly and rapidly forms a protective layer over the tear. This counteracts premature evaporation. In addition, one drop has a volume of approx. 10 µl only and therefore up to 280 drops per
3 ml content can be taken from a bottle of EvoTears®.

2. Being water-free

EvoTears® are the first water-free drops in the treatment of dry eyes as it only contains the substance perfluorohexyloctane. Thus, EvoTears® does not require any excipients such as preservatives, phosphates or emulsifiers.

EvoTears® represents the first anhydrous eye drops in the treatment of dry eyes. The effective protection against evaporation leads to patient satisfaction.
