1. What is Cationorm?® and for which diseases?
Cationorm® is a sterile, hypotonic, non-preserved emulsion eye drop in the form of a milky liquid.
Cationorm® contains mineral oils, glycerol, thioxapol, polyoxamer 188, TRIS hydrochloride, thromethamine, cetalkonium chloride (as cationic ingredient) and purified water.
Cationorm® contains 10 ml of sterile emulsion per container.
Cationorm® is recommended to help moisturize, lubricate and protect the surface of the eye to relieve symptoms of dry eye. Such symptoms include a stinging, itching, burning sensation or foreign body sensation in the eye (as if a grain of sand or dust has been deposited in the eye). These symptoms may be caused by external factors such as air conditioning, air pollution, air travel, working in front of a monitor, laser eye surgery, wearing contact lenses, etc., or by pathological conditions such as abnormal functioning of the Meibomian glands.
2. Cationorm® before use
Do not use Cationorm®-ot, if you are allergic to any of its ingredients.
This product is not suitable for the treatment of other eye diseases. If you have any questions, contact your doctor or pharmacist.
If you are using another eye drop at the same time, wait at least 5 minutes before Cationorm® before use. It is recommended that the Cationorm® apply the preparation last.
Catrionorm® does not affect contact lens quality and can be used while wearing contact lenses.
