Manuka Drops & Gel

17/10/2017

Optimel Manuka+ Drops are a front-line treatment for mild to moderate dry eye. The concentration of the high activity Manuka honey is 16% in a saline solution with benzoic acid as the preservative.

This drop is great for dry eye but also sore, red and irritated eyes. On the other hand, the Optimel Forte antibacterial gel formulation contains 98% Manuka honey and is ideal for chronic, moderate to severe dry eye disease, particularly meibomian gland disease and ocular Rosacea sufferers.

It is best described as ‘a drop for every practice to have, but not for every patient to use’ due to the significant sting on instillation. Close practitioner guidance is essential which is why it is not sold through pharmacies.
