  • From the UK - what is the best eye PF drop for MGD?

    Hi guys,

    I am currently using Carmellose 0.5% PF eye drop. It works quite well tbf, but wondered if i should be using an MGD specific drop. I have found Optive and Optive plus but they have preservatives in them. Could somebody recommend a PF MGD eye drop?

    You could try Cationorm which is preservative free. It contains mineral oils which provide a lipid component. My ophthalmologist (in the UK) recommended it for my MGD. It lasts longer on the eye than my usual Theoloz Duo or Hycosan Extra (sodium hyaloronate) drops but I find that it tends to sting for the first hour or so. The stinging is not too bad - a mild sensation sort-of halfway between stinging and soreness - but it is bearable and some people do not have this reaction. You can order it online from Butterflies Eye Care in the UK. It's exactly the same as Retaine MGD which is sold in the US. Hope this helps.

      Thanks Jenny,

      How does this differ from Evo Tears? Obviously the ingredients are different, but i wonder which works better.

        No idea, sorry. Never tried Evo Tears.

          Apparently Cationorm is the emulsion used as a base for Ikervis prescription cyclosporine drops. I quite like it and don’t find it stings. I only use it 4 times a day though whereas I use Thealoz Duo frequently throughout the day.

            I’m less keen on Cationorm now and Ikervis as I think they might be making my severe dry eye worse, although not sure at this point.

            just tried Systane Complete PF which is also an emulsion. So far so good, but will reserve judgement for now.

              Well I’ve also now tried Evotears and it made my eyes more sore and red. Didn’t like Systane Complete PF either. Will have to stick with Thealoz Duo and Liquifilm tears for now.

                What was wrong with Cationorm and Systance PF?which one lasted the longest?
