Lacrisert Ophthalmic Insert

Original price was: $456.00.Current price is: $323.99.

Hydroxypropyl cellulose in Lacrisert works by forming a gel-like matrix in the presence of the tear film, enhancing the eye’s natural moisture barrier without the need for frequent application throughout the day. Unlike traditional eye drops that provide temporary relief and require multiple applications, Lacrisert is designed for once-daily insertion, offering sustained symptom relief for dry eye sufferers.



Lacrisert Ophthalmic Insert is a unique, preservative-free, slow-release lubricant designed to alleviate symptoms of moderate to severe dry eye conditions. This sterile, rod-shaped, hydroxypropyl cellulose insert provides long-lasting lubrication for the eyes, making it an ideal solution for those whose dry eye symptoms are not adequately managed by liquid eye drops. The active ingredient, hydroxypropyl cellulose, acts as a lubricant to moisten the eye, which can reduce the symptoms of irritation, burning, and discomfort associated with dry eye.
