Oxyal

Oxyal (sodium hyaluronate) is a new occular lubricant available for the treatment of dry eye.

The usual dose is one or two drops into each affected eye and repeated as necessary. The eye drop solution contains a biodegradable preservative that is converted to salt and oxygen on contact with the eye. Oxyal can be used while wearing all types of contact lenses.
