    About Refresh Relieva PF

    • Active ingredients: carboxymethylcellulose sodium 0.5% and glycerin 0.9%
    • Contains sodium hyaluronate
    • Preservative-free
    • 10mL (.33 fl oz) multi-dose bottle

    Description (by Rebecca)

    This is Allergan's latest lubricant drop. It was first released as Refresh Repair, then rebranded soon after as Refresh Relieva.

    It marks a couple of milestones: it's the first drop with sodium hyaluronate from one of the major ophthalmic pharmaceuticals, and it's the first preservative-free multi-dose bottles from ditto. I'm looking forward to more of both. I had heard good things in our groups about Refresh Repair, so please let us know what you think! Some scleral lens users have been trying this (with their doctor's permission, since it's an off-label use) in their scleral lenses.

    Instructions

    They also have a surprisingly nice *large print* (my eyes thank them...) fold-out instruction sheet in the box, with illustrations. I've been meaning to figure out a better way to reproduce it online but in the meantime, here's at least the text part of it:

    STEP 1: Pull off the clear shipping cover by pulling straight up. Throw the shipping cover away. Do not use Refresh Relieva PF if shipping cover or pull tab are damaged or missing.

    STEP 2: Remove the pull tab on the colored protective cap by pulling the end of the pull tab away from the bottle then winding it counterclockwise. Throw away the pull tab.

    STEP 3: Remove the colored protective cap by pulling it up straight. Keep the colored protective cap.

    STEP 4: Prime the bottle for first-time use by slowly squeezing the bottle to deliver one drop onto a tissue to get used to the pressure and time required to deliver one drop. Wait a few seconds after squeezing for the drop to fully dispense. Be sure to let your bottle reinflate between drops. Do this twice. Do not let the bottle tip touch the tissue.

    STEP 5: The bottle is now ready for use. After use, recap the bottle with the colored protective cap by pushing it straight down onto the bottle.

    STEP 6: Squeeze the bottle gently in the middle and let one drop fall into your affected eye. Please note that there might be a few seconds delay between squeezing and the drop coming out. Do not squeeze the bottle too hard. Once administered, let the bottle reinflate and then replace the colored protective cap.

    By design, there may be residual volume of Refresh Relieva PF that remains in the bottle and may not dispense at the end when used as directed.

    Great

    I have always found these eye drops to be among my favorites but I hate using the one time vials. But I like the multi use bottle. I find the product itself to be very soothing to my eye. I find it helps me much more then the Oasis Tears that my eye doctors push.

    Love the Relieva products...the PF bottle, not so much.

    When Refresh Relieva PF and Refresh Repair (now called Refresh Relieva) first came out, I used the coupons I got from Allergan to buy both. Both provided relief for my chronic dry eye without irritating my eyes. And, unlike like my old stand-by Sooth XP, these solutions don't blur my vision. The PF double lockout bottle is so difficult to use that I have given up on it, hence the 4 stars not five, and am using the preserved version with no noticeable difference in how my eyes feel.

    Difficult to use

    Drops seem to work well, but they are very difficult to get out of the bottle.

    Good results with scleras

    A couple of drops seems to increase wearing time noticeable.

    Good for dry eyes

    This really helps a lot when dealing with dry eyes. The only reason I did t give 5 stars is because it is too hard to squeeze out.
