Thealoz® Duo Gel

Durable Hydration and Sustained Bioprotection

Thealoz® Duo Gel is the first preservative-free combination gel that lubricates and protects while providing longer lasting relief from dry eye.

Drop Features:

  • Longer lasting tear film thickness1
  • Relieves signs and symptoms of post cataract ocular surface discomfort and tear film stability2
  • Suitable for use all day and especially during the night

Ideal for Patients:

  • Patients requiring additional relief from their more persistent dry eye signs and symptoms with fewer drops3
  • Pre and post-cataract surgery comfort (note: please confirm dosing with your doctor)2
  • Day and nighttime use (particularity suited for evening use in combination with Thealoz Duo drops during the day)

Thealoz® Duo Gel is uniquely formulated, containing:

  • Hyaluronic Acid – Hydrates and lubricates the corneal surface
  • Carbomer – A mucoadhesive polymer that enables long-acting dispersion of the therapeutic ingredients4
  • Trehalose – A natural disaccharide synthesized by plants, such as the Rose of Jericho, as a response to stress (dryness, osmopressure, freezing)5

Trehalose also protects corneal cells against ultraviolet (UV) – induced oxidative damage6

 

Mechanism of Action

  • Bioprotection7 is a mechanism that helps preserve the cell structure, stabilize membrane lipids, protect proteins, and induce autophagy. All of these properties lead to a decrease in cellular apoptosis.
  • Osmoprotection8 allows the balance of osmotic pressure on both sides of the cell membrane, stabilizes the membrane lipids, and protects proteins
  • Regeneration6,9 renews cell material by inducing autophagy

Format:

  • Convenient, 30-pack, on-the-go single dose format
  • Preservative and Phosphate Free
  • Sterile, pH Neutral
  • Hypotonic
