What Luxyal™ is used for
Luxyal™ brings fast, long-lasting relief to dry, irritated and tired eyes caused by external factors such as dust, smoke, air conditioning, wind, prolonged computer work or the use of contact lenses.
Luxyal™ can be used with all types of contact lenses.
It contains sodium hyaluronate to lubricate the eye. Its activity is optimized and prolonged by the synergic action of Protector™. The presence of electrolytes in the solution help to keep the ocular surface in physiological conditions.
Luxyal™ also contains OXYD™, a unique new preserving system that keeps the solution sterile and helps reduce any irritation to the eye. OXYD™ turns into oxygen, water and sodium chloride on contact with the eye. These substances occur naturally in tears and do not irritate the eye.

While you are using Luxyal™
Things you must not do
To prevent possible contamination, do not let the tip of the dropper come into contact with any surface. Do not instil Luxyal™ into the eye(s) together with other substances, as their effect may be altered.
Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you notice anything that is making you feel unwell.
After using Luxyal™
Keep your eye drops in a cool dry place where the temperature stays below 25°C. Once opened, the solution must be used within 60 days. Any solution left over 60 days should be disposed of.
Do not store Luxyal™ or any other medicine in the bathroom or near a sink. Do not leave it on a windowsill or in the car. Heat and dampness can destroy some medicines.
Keep it where children cannot reach it. A locked cupboard at least one-and-a half metres above the ground is a good place to store medicines.
If your doctor tells you to stop taking this medicine or the expiry date has passed, ask your pharmacist what to do with any medicine that is left over.
