Dilute sodium hyaluronate (Healon) in the treatment of ocular surface disorders

Ann Ophthalmol. 1985 Mar;17(3):190-2.


The use of dilute (1/10%) sodium hyaluronate (Healon) eyedrops has given definite subjective patient improvement in a variety of ocular surface disorders, especially keratitis sicca. No adverse effects of the sodium hyaluronate drops have been encountered in patients who have used the drops for as long as two years. Masked trials and objective improvement of corneal staining patterns have also confirmed its efficacy.
