Vizomitin is used in the treatment of age processes of the glands that produce tear fluid, as well as to eliminate the dryness of the eye.
Due to its composition, which contains plastoquinonyl decyltriphenylphosphonium bromide, the effect of the preparation is very rapid and the first signs of improvement are noticeable after several instillation procedures.The main component allows provoking the production of human tears, and also significantly increases the level of tear film.
Now let's take a closer look at several unusual properties that the medicine has:
- Antioxidant activity is higher than that of other agents.Visomitin with the help of its active component is able to bind particles with free radicals, even having small concentrations.
- Stimulation of lacrimal fluid production. This significantly distinguishes this medicine from a number of others, because most analogues only replace a human tear, but do not provoke its production.
- Improves the epithelialization of the cornea and sclera of the eyes.
- It makes the film on the surface of the eye more solid, due to which it becomes less susceptible to many external stimuli and is able to maintain a normal state even under aggressive environmental conditions environment.
- Slowing down the process of clouding the lens.This means that in the case of cataracts, it will not develop so quickly.
- The active substance penetrates the systemic circulation quite quickly. One hour after instillation, Visomitin can be found in the tissues of the liver, kidneys, and heart.
The drug relieves the patient of a number of problems, including dry eyes, lack of tear fluid.
The drug must be buried in the area of the conjunctival sac.Usually, not more than two drops of the solution are added three times a day. Doctors individually calculate the duration of the course of treatment, based on the clinical situation. Six months of therapy lasts in people who suffer from the initial stage of cataracts.
Vizomitin is prescribed for:
- Presence of dry eye syndrome.
- The initial stage of cataract.
- Changes in the lacrimal gland.
The drug is contraindicated in:
- The presence of an allergy to a component, which is a part of the preparation.
- Individual intolerance of the remedy.
There were no official scientific studies on the use of Vizomitin during pregnancy and lactation.Therefore, ophthalmologists in such situations are not advised to use this medicine. Only in the event that the risk for the fetus is less than for the mother, the doctor can make an exception and prescribe the medication.
To small children
Before reaching the age of 18 years, it is not recommended to use these eye drops. An exception to the rules can be made by a specialist's recommendation, having previously weighed all the pros and cons.

Allergy sufferers may develop hives.Some doctors warn of the possibility of angioedema angioedema,that is, the distinctive puffiness of the skin on the face and under its surface, as well as the possibility of anaphylactic shock. This provokes a rapid decrease in blood pressure and multiple organ failure. However, it is worth noting thatreal and confirmed data on such complications were not observed and were not recorded.
As soon as the first complications appear, it is necessary to stop taking the medication, urgently seek an ophthalmologist to adjust the treatment and take measures to eliminate side effects.
Analogies in the pharmaceutical market: Artelak, Hilo-Komod, Okulokhel, Okuflesh, Hilabak.
A worthy analogue of Visomitin is Floxal. It is an antimicrobial agent with a wide spectrum of action and aimed at eliminating the same diseases as the agent in question.
