What is HYLO-COMOD®?
HYLO-COMOD® is a sterile preservative-free solution containing 1 mg/ml
sodium hyaluronate, a citrate buffer, sorbitol and water.
What is HYLO-COMOD® used for?
To restore the eye surface moisture if you suffer from dry, burning or
irritated eyes due to environmental conditions as well as after
When should HYLO-COMOD® be used?
If your eyes are itching, burning, or easily tiring, if you feel, as if you
had sand in your eyes, this might be due to a lack of moisture on the
surface of your eyes. If you spent a longer time in an air-conditioned room,
for example, or after intense computer work the natural tear film that
usually covers the eye surface breaks up more quickly. For your eye tissue
to be fully functioning, it needs to be continuously lubricated by a tear
HYLO-COMOD® contains the sodium salt of the hyaluronic acid, a natural
substance that is found in the eye but also in other parts of the body. Its
special property is that it forms a regular, stable, long lasting
lubricating moisture film on the eye surface that is not easily rinsed off.
It does, however, not cause blurred vision and protects your eyes from
dryness and irritation for a long time.
This is particularly important if you wear contact lenses, because the
contact lens needs to swim in sufficient tear fluid in order not to cause
any discomfort. HYLO-COMOD® may be used while wearing contact lenses.
Wearing soft or hard contact lenses will be made more comfortable by using
HYLO-COMOD® as it does not form crusts or residue.
How should HYLO-COMOD® be applied?
Only use HYLO-COMOD® if the sealing of the folding carton was intact before
the first use.
Remove cap before use. For this purpose, hold the cap just over the bottle.
With your other hand, pull away the bottle from the cap with a rotary
Before the first application please turn the HYLO-COMOD® bottle with its tip
down and press onto the bottom of the bottle until the first drop appears at
the nozzle. Now the bottle is ready for further use.
Hold the bottle upside down with the thumb on the shoulder of the bottle and
the other fingers on the bottom of the bottle.
Support the hand holding the COMOD®-bottle as shown with the other hand.
Lean your head back slightly,
gently pull down your lower eyelid and apply a strong and quick pressure on
the middle of bottom of the bottle. This activates the mechanism for the
release of one drop. Because of the special COMOD® valve system, size and
speed of each drop are the same independently on how much pressure is
applied. Slowly close your eyes to allow the fluid to spread evenly on the
Replace cap immediately after use. Take care that the dropper tip is dry.
When applying the fluid please avoid any contact between the tip of the
bottle and your eye or your skin.
The COMOD®-bottle releases 10 ml of solution which is the equivalent of
approximately 300 drops. Due to technical reasons a small amount of solution
always remains in the bottle.
HYLO-COMOD® can be used for an unlimited period of time. Only one person
should be treated with one particular bottle of HYLO-COMOD®.
What else do you need to know?
If you use any other eye drops there should be at least 30 minutes between
the applications and HYLO-COMOD® should always be used last. Eye ointments
should, however, always be administered after using HYLO-COMOD®.
Because it is preservative-free HYLO-COMOD® is well tolerated even when used
over a longer period of time. In very rare cases hypersensitive reactions
like burning or excessive tearing have been reported which stopped
immediately when the use of HYLO-COMOD® was discontinued.
To avoid incompatibility reactions that are possible due to interactions
between contact lens care products and HYLO-COMOD®, we recommend to wait for
about 30 minutes with the application of the eye drops after inserting
