Have you ever wondered how some organisms can survive, and actually thrive, in dry environments like the desert? The secret with certain plants is their ability to produce a bioprotectant called Trehalose. Trehalose is a naturally occurring sugar found in many plants, such as the Rose of Jericho, pictured above (also known as the Resurrection plant). Its unique properties enable survival in conditions of extreme dehydration, freezing, and U.V. radiation.
Trehalose is one of the main ingredients found in Thealoz Duo, a multi-dose, preservative-free lubricating eye drop. It protects the surface cells of the eye from drying out, reduces inflammation and restores the tear film. Providing immediate comfort and long-lasting relief, clinical studies have shown that a single drop of Thealoz Duo lasts in the eye for up to 4 hours, giving you clearer vision with fewer drops for longer periods. Being both preservative-free and phosphate-free, Thealoz Duo is safe to use with contact lens wear and is ideal for all levels of dry eye symptomology.
With Thealoz Duo, not only do you benefit from the properties of Trehalose, but it also contains Sodium Hyaluronate. Sodium Hyaluronate is a naturally occurring molecule found in the human body that provides moisture and hydration. It binds to water molecules up to 1000 times its own molecular weight, without blurring vision.
Made in France, Thealoz Duo is packaged in an innovative multi-dose, preservative-free bottle. Each bottle contains 300 drops and remains safe to use up to 3 months from opening. What is so important about the fact it is preservative-free? Preservatives, meant to keep eye drops stable over time, have been found to cause eye irritation, inflammation, and damage to the ocular surface, leading to worsening dry eye. Using preservative-free drops is therefore a safer way to use drops, especially if needed many times per day.
Theoloz Duo is very well tolerated, in fact, one bottle is sold every second around the world! It is available in over 70 countries, and is the number one dry eye therapy drop in Europe. In Canada, Theoloz Duo is available through your eye care professional. Thealoz Duo protects, regenerates and hydrates. For more information on dry eye, visit our Dry Eye Therapy page.
