Systane Complete is Now Available in Canada
Alcon Pharmaceuticals has just released a brand new lubricating eye drop called Sytane Complete. Providing a new option for dry eye relief.
This new dry eye treatment is a hybrid formulation combining all the benefits of their Systane Ultra Hydration (see early article below) and Systane Balance eye drops. This new combo therapy offers a more convenient option to patients that have dry eye symptoms related to both lipid and aqueous layer deficiencies.
The new Systane Complete uses a new nanodroplet technology to provide better overall surface coverage. This diffuse coverage of the cornea provides fast-long lasting relief to dry eye patients.

Systane Ultra Hydration
Alcon Pharmaceuticals has introduced a new member to their world leading Systane eye drop family. Systane Hydration is a new formulation approved for the relief of dry, burning, irritated eyes and the repair of damaged corneal epithelial cells on the eye's surface.
How’s it different? Systane Hydration includes Hyaluronic Acid a naturally found polymer of disaccharides (aka. sugars) which are present in the cartilage of our knees and within our skin. It’s highly elastic properties help promote longer surface contact, extending the benefit of the lubricating drops, while inversely limiting the visual blur. In the long run, this combination may contribute to improving the signs and symptoms of dry eye syndrome. Hyaluronic acid is considered an essential player in wound healing and displays mild anti-inflammatory properties which may further add to the treatment benefits.
Approved for Contact Lenses. Systane Hydration is approved for use with all silicone hydrogel contact lenses and soft contact lenses for less irritation, discomfort and blurred vision related to contact lens-induced dryness.
