Dry eye syndrome can be caused by many different factors, and, in most cases, requires treatment by eye drops which can be of various types – lubricating, hydrating, mucoadhesive. Théa has acquired immense experience in this domain with the development of a full range of products for lachrymal substitution, all preservative-free, in either single dose units or ABAK multi-dose bottles.
 
It has been shown that the use of preservatives should be avoided as they have harmful effects on the eyelids, the ocular surface and the quality of tears.
