Gel Eye Drops
Advanced hydration with fewer applications brings long-term comfort for your pet.
Dry Eye is a common eye condition in dogs.
It occurs when their tear glands are no longer able to produce the normal amount of tears which play an essential role in ocular health – from lubrication to protection to immune defense. The condition can be very painful because without tears, the eyes feel dry and irritated (feeling like sandy grit in the eye) and are more prone to infections and ulcers. If left untreated, this can lead to pigmentation changes and scarring of the eye surface, and eventually even blindness.
Advanced lubrication, ease and comfort.
Clinically proven in dogs: significant improvement was shown in symptoms of Dry Eye when administered twice daily compared to the standard lubrication product on the market1
Long-lasting lubrication: ordinary eye drops can quickly evaporate
Engineered for convenience: enhanced duration reduces the number of applications
Tailored for easy application: specifically made to create a “not too thick, not too watery” consistency that is easy to control and dispense accurately
Less glob on your pet’s eyes: unlike others, Ocunovis creates a sheer thin application without blurring
Formulation based on naturally occurring substances found in the body contains no preservative or synthetic additives that cause pain or stinging

A two-fold approach to a life-long condition.
In most cases of Dry Eye (Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca or KCS), life-long treatment is required since there is no permanent cure for the destruction of tear glands. Veterinarians typically prescribe a two-fold regimen to treat and manage the disease: prescription ointment plus daily tear replacement.
Ocunovis BioHAnce Gel Eye Drops do not treat the underlying cause of dry eye. They are intended to be used alongside licensed medications such as cyclosporine, which is indicated to slow the progressive immune destruction of your dog’s tear glands.
In many cases of KCS, the gland destruction is so advanced by the time it’s diagnosed, therapy may be less effective. This means tear replacement drops that hydrate and lubricate the eye surface are often required long-term to keep the eyes as comfortable and painfree as possible. Even in dogs that respond well to treatment with cyclosporine ointment, ongoing use of tear supplementation is also recommended for daily comfort.
Ask your veterinarian if Ocunovis would complement the Dry Eye medication prescribed for your pet.

You can apply as few as 1 drop in each eye 2x a day to effectively support your pet’s eye discomfort
