Povidone Iodine (Ophthalmic)
Povidone is used for the symptomatic treatment of dry eye conditions including keratoconjunctivitis sicca. It is also given as a substitute for tear fluid in case of the unstable tear film or insufficient moistening of the eye surface.
This is a sterile ophthalmic solution containing Povidone (polymer) with electrolytes (inorganic salts) for topical administration to the eyes.
Povidone is an almost colorless, clear aqueous solution administered in the form of drops. After topical application Povidone eye drops spreads rapidly over the conjunctiva and cornea forming a lubricating and protective film. The composition of this eye drops, containing the active compound Povidone and the electrolytes (magnesium, potassium and sodium) is very similar to natural tears.
Dosage & Administration
1 drop 4 times daily or as required, depending upon the severity of the disease, to be instilled into the conjunctival sac.
If several medicines are to be administered to the eye, there should be an interval of at least 5 minutes between each application.
This eye drop is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to any ingredient of the product.
Occasionally mild, transient burning or sticky sensation and very rarely irritation or hypersensitivity reactions reported. Blurred vision after application may occur.
Pregnancy & Lactation
There is no experience regarding the safety of the Povidone eye drops in human pregnancy or lactation. Administration during pregnancy and lactation is therefore not recommended, except for compelling reasons.
