New Vismed multi 'Just Squeeze' bottle out now!

TRB Chemedica (UK) Ltd, supplier of sodium hyaluronate based ophthalmic eye products in the UK and Ireland, announces the launch of the new VISMED® MULTI fitted with the innovative and patented preservative-free multi-dose Ophthalmic Squeeze Dispenser (OSD) for the treatment of dry eye. Dry eye patients regularly instil lubricant eye drops, and often do so for the rest of their lives. Many of these patients are elderly and can experience difficulties when using preservative-free multi-dose dispensers, as currently available dispensing systems do not offer overall satisfaction for eye drop delivery. The OSD squeezable dispenser - the result of more than 10 years of research and development in the delivery of preservative-free ophthalmic solutions - highlights the following features :

    1) intrinsic intuitiveness of a squeezable container,
    2) user friendliness for all adult age groups due to a low actuation force,
    3) precise and reproducible drop ejection,
    4) ergonomic and pocket size design.

VISMED® MULTI is a patented, preservative free, sterile, hypotonic lubricant eye drop formulation of 0.18 % sodium hyaluronate with essential ions (calcium, magnesium, and potassium). The new dispenser contains 10ml of solution, equivalent to more than 250 drops, and remains sterile for up to  3 months after first use. TRB Chemedica (UK) Ltd’s MD, Peter Hunt, stated that “The new VISMED® MULTI ‘Just Squeeze’ bottle will be very well received by both patients and medical professionals.”

The worldwide trend towards preservative-free, multi-dose dispensers, which are safe, patient-friendly and cost-effective,  like the OSD system, resonates with TRB Chemedica’s commitment to maintain VISMED® MULTI’s status as the gold standard in lubricant eye drops.  
VISMED® MULTI is still available on the NHS (FP10), as are the other two preservative-free eye drops, VISMED® and VISMED® Gel.
