Alimera Sciences has announced the arrival of Soothe™ Emollient (lubricant) Eye Drops, the market’s first multidose, emollient-based artificial tear product. The drops offer over-the-counter relief to the 12 million Americans with dry eye, a painful condition in which the body cannot produce enough tears to keep the eye surface lubricated.
Soothe™ features a lipid restorative (Restoryl™) that re-establishes the eye’s protective oily layer to reduce tear evaporation and to seal in essential moisture, giving patients up to eight hours of comfort.
