Celluvisc is an ocular lubricant utilized for temporary relief of eye dryness, irritation, and burning caused by wind or sun exposure. It can also be utilized as a preventative measure against further irritations. 

Carboxymethylcellulose, the active ingredient in Celluvisc, functions to stabilize the tear film, enhance tear viscosity, and prevent tear evaporation and excessive drainage. This action effectively maintains proper ocular moisture, provides protection against injury and infection, and alleviates symptoms of dry eyes and foreign body sensations. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before using Celluvisc, and every time you get a refill, thoroughly review its medication guide and patient information leaflet. Should any inquiries arise, do not hesitate to consult your doctor or pharmacist. 

Celluvisc is for ophthalmic use only. Do not ingest. 

Typically, 1 or 2 drops of Celluvisc are administered in the affected eye(s) as needed. 

To properly administer this eye lubricant, follow these steps: 

  1. Begin by washing your hands. 
  2. Inspect the lubricant’s quality and if it changes color or becomes hazy, cease usage, and acquire a new one. 
  3. To avoid contamination, take care not to touch the tip of the dropper, and do not let it touch your eye or any surfaces. 
  4. Tilt your head back and look up, then pull down your lower eyelid to create a pouch. 
  5. Place the dropper directly over the eye and squeeze out 1 or 2 drops as needed. 
  6. Look down and gently close your eye for 1 or 2 minutes. 
  7. Place one finger at the corner of your eye near the nose and apply gentle pressure to prevent the medication from draining away from the eye. 
  8. Remove any excess residue using a clean tissue. 

Wait 5 minutes before applying other eye medications if using different types. Apply eye drops before ointments. 

Inform your physician if your condition persists or deteriorates beyond 72 hours.
