    About Retaine MGD Opthalmic Emulsion

    • Preservative-free
    • Active ingredients: Light mineral oil, mineral oil
    • Designed to address lipid layer of tear film
    • Box of 30 single-use vials

    Description (by Rebecca)

    Note: Packaging changed in June 2024, and there was a minor change to an inactive ingredient.

    This is an emulsion (milky-looking oil based drops) and is quite popular. This is not a drop that I have used personally so I can't share my experience with it. I am stocking it because of customer requests... I have quite a few customers for whom this is the drop that is the most comfortable and the longest lasting. 

    Description (from the manufacturer's literature)

    Lipid-replenishing formula utilizes electrostatic attraction to stabilize the tear film and protect against moisture loss. Preservative-Free.

    Very effective for my dry eyes!

    I've been using Hylo Forte drops for daily dry eye relief. These are equivalent or better. And MUCH easier to manage than Hylo Forte when away from home. I have not found another "vial" option that works for me. I will definitely be using more of these!

    Thick and soothing

    These drops are really nice. I replaced these over GenTeal Gel for nighttime care, and I like how less greasy and heavy they make my eyes feel.

    No more gritty sandy feeling in my eyes

    My optometrist recommended Retaine MGD because my oil glands don't function well. These are the first drops that make my eyes feel silky and smooth when I blink after inserting the drops. And the fact that they are preservative free means I can use them as many times as I like during the day. I highly recommend them.
