Retaine MGD Eye Drops are an ophthalmic emulsion that moisturizes, lubricates and protects moderate to severe dry eyes. Unlike other lubricant eye drops which can evaporate quickly, Retaine MGD provides long- lasting relief utilizing a proprietary cationic oil emulsion technology that effectively delivers ingredients through electrostatic attraction between positively charged droplets and the negatively charged ocular surface. The hypotonicity of the emulsion adds moisture by lowering the salt concentration of tears while the lipid component lubricates and protects the surface of the eye.

Each box contains 30 sterile, single-dose containers

Question: what is the difference between the retaine mgd and the other retaine drops, like the retaine cms and hpmc?<br /> Answer: MGD is a cationic emulsion and contains oil for longer-lasting effects.<br /><br />Question: Compared to Restasis ?<br /> Answer: Restasis is a prescription medication containing cyclosporine. For more information, see<br /><br />Question: Can this be used with contact lenses?<br /> Answer: Because Retaine MGD eyedrops are preservative-free, you may use them with contact lenses.<br /><br />Question: Can you reuse a vial if it is the same day?<br /> Answer: Officially, the product is approved for only once for each vial. However, most doctors inform their patients that it is acceptable to use an opened vial during a single day.<br /><br />Question: Can I use this 4 times a day?<br /> Answer: Retaine MGD is a specially-formulated lubricant eyedrop with longer benefit than standard tears, and it may be used as often as needed for relief of dry eye symptoms.<br /><br />Question: Is Retaine MGD available in a multiuse bottle instead of just in single dose containers? It seems like a waste to have to throw out the single use container when most of the Retaine is left in the container after application. This is very expensive for everyday use of the product in this type of package. Do you have a preservative version?<br /> Answer: It is only available in the single dose containers.<br /><br />Question: does retaine help dry eyes caused by Sjogrens?<br /> Answer: Retaine MGD can help the symptoms of dry eyes due to Sjogren's, but because there are both evaporative and tear production problems with Sjogrens (not to mention salivation deficits and inflammatory components), we recommend our Dry Eye Club package instead, at<br /><br />Question: It looks like this could be my solution for dry eyes at night that i think are due to hormonal changes...before I order, I'm a little nervous about all the &quot;scientific&quot; this safe for my 57 year old eyes? Thank you.<br /> Answer: Retaine MGD eyedrops have no systemic side effects or detrimental effects to the eyes.<br /><br />Question: Is it Ok to use this product if I have Blepharitis and Glaucoma?<br /> Answer: Yes for both. In fact, MGD stands for &quot;Meibomian Gland Dysfunction,&quot; which is found in meibomitis and blepharitis.<br /><br />
