GelTears is a clear colourless liquid gel and contains a lubricant that is used as a substitute for natural tears. Your eyes will normally produce just enough natural tears to allow them to move easily and comfortably. If your eyes do not produce enough tears they can become dry and irritated.
It can also be used in patients who suffer from sore eyes because their tear film is unstable. GelTears will help keep your eyes comfortable.
