Murine for dry eyes

Dry eyes and eye irritation are common afflictions, brought on from a number of factors.

Causes of dry eyes include:

  • Air conditioned or heated environments (dry air)
  • Being over 50
  • Cold, windy, dry or dusty weather
  • Drinking alcohol
  • Looking at computer screen for extended periods
  • Side effect of another medication
  • Smoking
  • Underlying medical conditions
  • Wearing contact lenses

Murine offers a range of different eye drop formulations to suit your specific symptoms, such as for red and itchy eyes and for those whose eye condition is caused by hay fever.


Why do dry eyes develop?

Your eyes are coated with a thin veil of tears known as the tear film. This natural film aids to cleanse your eyes and lubricates the eyelids, enabling them to open and close without irritation.

Cold, windy, dry, or dusty weather, keeping your eyes open for extended periods, wearing contact lenses, taking certain medicines and some underlying health conditions can cause dry eyes.

If the tear film evaporates, or if the tear glands do not produce enough fluid to keep the eyes sufficiently lubricated, your eyes become dry and prone to irritation.


How to prevent dry eyes?

Dry eyes can be prevented by taking regular breaks from screens and keeping your eyes clean.

Adjustments to your home or working environment can also be beneficial, such as keeping your monitor at eye level, keeping air humid (using a humidifier), sleeping adequately to rest your eyes, and taking breaks from contact lenses by wearing glasses occasionally.

Avoid spending long periods fixated on screens or being in smoky, dry or dusty environments.

If your dry eyes are a side effects of a medicine you have been prescribed, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking a prescribed medicine unless you have been told it is safe to do so by your doctor.


How does Murine dry and tired eye drops work?

Murine dry and tired eye drops are an eye lubricant which brings relief from ocular irritation (irritation of the eyes) and dry eye syndrome, sometimes called "screen eyes" due to a common association between the condition and staring at screens.

The active ingredient of Murine dry and tired eye drops is polyvinyl alcohol-povidone (PVA-Povidone). This ingredient mimics the natural tear film and provided lubrication between the corner and the eye lids.


How do I use Murine eye drops?

If you wear contact lenses, you should remove them before applying Murine eye drops.

Tilt your head back and gently pull your lower eyelid down.

Holding the dropper over your eyeball, slightly squeeze the bottle to dispense 1 drop into your eye.

Repeat the above steps for your other eye if necessary.

Close your eyes for 1 or 2 minutes.

If any excess fluid builds up at the corners of your eyes or runs down your face, simply dab it with a clean, dry tissue.

Wait at least 15 minutes before reinserting your contact lenses or applying any other eye drops.

Repeat the process 2 or 3 times daily.

If your symptoms persist for longer than 3 days, stop using this medicine and speak to your doctor.

For more information on how to use Murine eye drops, including how frequently you should use them, please read the patient information leaflet which is enclosed with the medicine.
