Keratoprotector. The drug has a protective effect on the cornea of ??the eye with decreased secretion of tear fluid or increased evaporation of the tear film. Polyvinyl alcohol and povidone have lubricant properties that reduce eye irritation and redness. By covering the surface of the eye, these substances reduce surface tension and prevent tears from tearing. Polyvinyl alcohol has properties similar to mucin produced by the conjunctival glands. It helps soften and lubricate (moisturize) the surface of the eye, increases the stability of the tear film.

Polyvinyl alcohol undergoes an esterification reaction characteristic of compounds with secondary hydroxy groups. It breaks down in strong acids and softens or dissolves in weak acids and alkalis. In high concentrations, polyvinyl alcohol is incompatible with inorganic salts, especially phosphates and sulfates. Sludge formation of 5% polyvinyl alcohol can be caused by reaction with phosphates. The formation of a gel from a solution of polyvinyl alcohol can occur in the presence of borax. Povidone solution is compatible with many inorganic salts, natural and synthetic resins and other substances. Interacts in solution with sulfathiazole, sodium salicylate, salicylic acid, phenobarbital, tannin and other substances. The effectiveness of some preservatives (for example,thiomersal) may decrease due to the formation of complexes with povidone'
