Lubrex eye drops are an eye lubricant used to relieve dry eyes. It helps to soothe the irritation and burning in dry eyes by maintaining proper lubrication of the eyes. Carboxymethylcellulose sodium is polymer in nature. It is a clear and colorless aqueous solution. This medication lubricates the surface of the eye in the same way as natural tears. It relieves the symptoms of dry eye in two ways. It provides lubricating and hydrating protective shield on the ocular surface of the eye and then it works below the tear film to provide protection to the cornea.
Use Lubrex eye drops when needed. Wait for at least 5-10 minutes before delivering any other medication in the same eye to avoid dilution. Wash your hands and do not touch the end of the dropper. Do not drive or use any machines that require clear vision until you are sure you can do it safely. Consult your doctor if your condition does not improve or if the side effects bother you. Do not use it while wearing soft contact lenses.
