About Tears Eye Drops 5 ml

Tears Eye Drops 5 ml contains Carboxymethylcellulose, an eye lubricant known as artificial tears. It works similarly to natural tears and provides temporary relief from burning and discomfort due to the eye's dryness by maintaining proper lubrication of the eyes and acting as a protectant against further irritation.

You are advised to take Tears Eye Drops 5 ml as recommended it. The most common side effects of Tears Eye Drops 5 ml are irritation, pain, and blurred vision. They do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.
