OFTASON is an add-on treatment to antihypertensive glaucoma therapy. It is a sterile, preservative-free solution containing Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and Vitamin E-TPGS.
One of the key ways glaucoma presents is a build-up of pressure in the eye. There is evidence that this pressure stresses the nerve cells in the back of the eye called Retinal Ganglion Cells (RGCs). RGCs transmit messages from the eyes to the brain, and are therefore crucial for sight. Once RGCs die due to the damage caused by glaucoma, they are not replaced. OFTASON helps to protect the RGCs by providing additional CoQ10 directly to the cells. The CoQ10 in OFTASON provides the cells with additional energy and protection through its antioxidant properties. OFTASON is provided in a preservative-free multidose bottle and can be used while wearing contact lenses. Please note that OFTASON is NOT a replacement for pressure lowering (antihypertensive) glaucoma drops. It is important to wait ten minutes after applying prescription pressure lowering drops before applying OFTASON. Please see package leaflet for full instructions for use.
OFTASON eye drops come in a 10 ml bottle
