Melcare's Optimel Antibacterial Manuka+ Eye Gel helps improve eye surface health and reduce inflammation.
Optimel Antibacterial Manuka+ Eye Gel assist the surface health of the eye by creating a microenvironment that supports healing and prevents further damage. When applied to the surface of the eye, Optimel Antibacterial Manuka+ Eye Gel provide a barrier that through low pH, acts on bacteria that may potentially colonise the traumatised surface.
Patients with tear deficiency and meibomian gland disease have an overgrowth of ocular flora. This overgrowth is thought to contribute to the tear film instability and ocular surface damage. Both topical and systemic antibiotics can significantly reduce the Colony Forming Units (CFUs) in eyes with chronic lid disease. With the increase of resistance among ocular pathogens (Cernak et al 2011) ,the efficacy of antibiotic therapeutic regimens is being reduced.
Application of Optimel Antibacterial Manuka+ Eye Gel 3 times daily to the inferior conjunctival fornix and lower lid margins can significantly reduce CFUs from baseline at month 1 and month 3 in the eyelids and conjunctiva of patients with dry eye caused by tear deficiency and/or meibomian gland disease (Albietz and Lenton 2006).
