    Description (Rebecca's)

    April, 2022

    This drop is truly new, not just "new to the US" (i.e. part of the accelerating migration of dry eye products from Europe to the US). How often do we get a completely new eye drop... not very!

    Optase MGD is, in effect, a sort of dry eye "combo drop". While glycerin is nominally the active ingredient, a cardinal unwritten and unspoken rule of artificial tears in the US is that the interesting stuff frequently gets tucked in the inactive ingredient list*. Optase MGD is a classic example. 

    • Sodium hyaluronate. Oasis was the first example of a sodium hyaluronate drop on the US market but by now almost every major brand has a drop containing it.
    • Trehalose. This is best known in a European drop called Thealoz Duo (which, speaking of the migration, recently came to the US under the brand Ivizia), but trehalose also exists in Refresh Optive Mega and Theratears Extra. 
    • Sacha Inchi Seed Oil, making this (or so I gather) reasonably describable as a lipid drop. There aren't too many of those in the US - Retaine MGD being the most notable one, although it is certainly not directly comparable.

    Anyway, ingredients aside, the proof is always in the proverbial pudding. As we know in the dry eye world, everything works for someone and nothing works for everyone. If you try this let me know what you think, especially in comparison to other drops with any similar ingredients.

    *This is in order to comply with dinosaur-era FDA regulations about artificial tears, otherwise known as the OTC Monograph (specifically for ophthalmic demulcents and emollients). In 2020, a law was changed that brings at least some hope of this eventually changing.

    Love this! I’ve been using it for 2 weeks and my eyes feel much more comfortable. I wish I could have found it sooner.

    Very hydrating

    I’ve used Systane, Xiidra, and Tyrvaya in the past but none are as hydrating as Optase MGD. This drop is very soothing and effective and it does not result in excess tearing. The only negative is that the oddly shaped dropper takes some practice and skill to use toward the end of the bottle.

    Optase MGD Advanced

    My Dry Eye Clinic Doctor recommended this but didn’t have any samples to sell a month ago. Now they are discontinued. This product helped my eyes and gave relief after I tried soooo many other standard store dry eye drops that did not help MGD. I am using the optase purple pack intense dry eye drops which helps but plan to try the Oasis line per your emails that are so helpful.

    Great drops!

    I’ve tried a lot of drops. This is a new brand for me and they feel very lubricating. Only drawback is the dropper. I always seem to waste one drop.
