Alcon Canada introduces SYSTANE® COMPLETE Lubricant Eye Drops, the first all-in-one drop for all types of dry eye
TORONTO, Oct. 25, 2018 /CNW/ - Alcon, the global leader in eye care, introduces SYSTANE® COMPLETE, the first all-in-one drop for all types of dry eye that provides hydration and lasting protection for optimal dry eye relief. The new product joins the #1 doctor recommended1 SYSTANE® family of dry eye drops as the brand's most advanced solution to date.
Although there are three general types of dry eye, the majority of eye drops are only designed to treat one type. Featuring tiny, nano-sized lipid droplets that replenish and lock in moisture across the eye surface, SYSTANE® COMPLETE Lubricant Eye Drops are the ideal first-line treatment option for people who suffer from evaporative dry eye, aqueous tear deficient dry eye or mixed dry eye.
"As an optometrist, I understand first-hand the need to provide patients with dry eye solutions that not only work, but provide instant relief that lasts for hours," said Dr. Judy Parks of Ancaster Eye Clinic. "That's why I am particularly excited about the addition of SYSTANE® COMPLETE to the SYSTANE® portfolio, because it takes key ingredients from existing drops and elevates the technology to deliver real relief for patients for all major types of dry eye."
With increased screen time and longer workdays, dry eye is becoming one of the most common conditions seen by Canadian optometrists.
"Dry eye is a chronic issue for a large number of my patients, often making it a challenge to treat them and achieve optimal results," said Dr. Parks. "SYSTANE® COMPLETE represents a much-needed, over-the-counter dry eye solution. The technology is designed to deliver the active ingredient in a way that ensures effective coverage of the eye, so I can deliver the best outcome for my patients."
SYSTANE® COMPLETE joins the full line of SYSTANE® Lubricant eye drops, including SYSTANE® ULTRA Hydration and SYSTANE® BALANCE. SYSTANE® COMPLETE Lubricant Eye Drops is now available for over-the-counter purchase in Canada. Please view the SYSTANE® COMPLETE Method of Action video to learn more.
