1. WHAT CELLUVISC IS AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR
Celluvisc is a substitute for tears, and contains the lubricant called carmellose sodium. It is used for the
treatment of the symptoms of dry eye (such as soreness, burning, irritation or dryness) caused by you not
producing enough tears to keep the eye wet.
2. BEFORE YOU USE CELLUVISC
Do not use Celluvisc
• If you are hypersensitive (allergic) to carmellose sodium or any of the other ingredients of Celluvisc.
These are listed at the end of this leaflet in section 6 "Further information".

WARNING!

Take special care with Celluvisc
• If irritation, pain, redness or changes in vision occur or if you feel your condition is getting worse,
stop taking this medicine and consult your doctor or pharmacist.

Pregnancy and breast-feeding
You can use Celluvisc if you are pregnant and when you are breast-feeding.
Driving and using machines
Celluvisc does not usually cause blurred (unclear) vision. If you do experience temporary blurring, do not
drive or use machines until your sight is clear.
Read all the information in this leaflet before using Celluvisc.
If you are unsure about anything, discuss it with your doctor, nurse or pharmacist.

DATE:

You do not need to remove contact lenses before using Celluvisc.
Make sure that the single-dose container is intact before use. The solution should be used immediately after
opening. To avoid contamination, do not let the open-end of the single-dose container touch your eye or

Do not re-use the single-dose container even if there is some solution left.
