Keratoprotective drug, artificial tear. Slezin contains a water-soluble polymer system, which, in combination with the natural tear fluid of the eye, improves corneal hydration, ensuring the hydrophilicity of the corneal surface due to the usual adsorption processes at the interface between the tear fluid film and the corneal surface. The drug physiologically mixes with the tear fluid film, increasing its stability on the surface of the cornea. Reduces irritation symptoms associated with dry eye syndrome and protects the cornea from drying out. After a single instillation, the effect of the drug lasts for 90 minutes.
When applied topically, systemic absorption is low.
Blurred vision has been reported most frequently in clinical trials. The following adverse events are classified according to the following frequency of occurrence: very common (> 1/10), often (> 1/100 to <1/10), infrequently (> 1/1000 to <1/100), rarely (> 1/10 000 to <1/1000), very rare (<1/10 000), frequency unknown (frequency cannot be determined from available data). Each adverse event group is listed in descending order of severity. From the immune system: frequency unknown - hypersensitivity. From the nervous system: infrequently - headache. From the side of the organ of vision: very often - blurred vision; often - residual symptoms of dry eye syndrome, eyelid disorders, unusual sensations in the eyes, feeling of a foreign body,discomfort in the eyes; infrequently - itchy eyes, eye irritation, conjunctival injection, photophobia, eye hypesthesia; the frequency is unknown - erythema of the eyelids, conjunctival edema, eye pain, discharge from the eyes, crusts on the edges of the eyelids, lacrimation. General disorders and disorders at the injection site: infrequently - discomfort on the skin.
Application during pregnancy and lactation
There is no information on the use of Slezin during pregnancy. However, the active ingredients of Slezin - dextran-70 and hypromellose - act as additional protection of the anterior surface of the eyeball and do not exhibit pharmacological activity. Absorption of the components of the drug into the systemic circulation is not expected, which excludes the possibility of their effect on reproductive function or fetal development. The use of the drug Slezin during pregnancy is possible. It is not known whether dextran-70, hypromellose or other components of the drug pass into breast milk. Despite this, it is not necessary to stop breastfeeding. The use of the drug Slezin during breastfeeding is possible. Because dextran and hypromellose are pharmacologically inert substances,the effect of Slezin on male and female fertility is not expected.
