Lacri-Lube Eye Ointment

 

What Lacri-Lube is and what it is used for

Lacri-Lube eye ointment is composed of white soft paraffin, liquid paraffin (commonly referred to as mineral oil), and lanolin alcohols (known as wool alcohols). These components work together to form a clear, lubricating, and hydrating layer over the eye’s surface.

Lacri-Lube eye ointment offer comforting relief for dry eye symptoms, including soreness, irritation, or a gritty feeling. These symptoms might arise from inadequate tear production in the eye or be due to various medical conditions or treatments.

The ointment additionally serves to shield the eyeball, making it beneficial for individuals experiencing repeated corneal epithelial erosion. Lacri-Lube eye ointment is especially effective for night time use, as it stays in the eye for a more extended period compared to eye drops.

 

How to use Lacri-Lube Eye Ointment

This ointment can be used as often as needed. It is particularly helpful for protecting the eyeball at night, because it lubricates the eye for longer than drops.
