    Description (by Rebecca)

    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.

    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.

    Phenomenal Product

    These are the absolute BEST drops I have ever used. My eye doctor gave me about 6 different ones to try, and this one is the ONLY one I will use on a daily basis. My eyes make tears but no lubricant. If I need more lubrication I occasionally use Refresh Celluvisc-but Retain is my go-to drop for EVERY DAY use. Please continue to stock it as it is hard to find in mainstream pharmacies. Phenomenal Product!!!

    Improves Quality of Tear Layer

    I wear scleral contact lenses to combat the dry eyes and keratoconus correction. They are the only contacts I could wear more than 2 hours. I still struggle with not being able to maintain moisture on the top surface of the lens which leads to some discomfort, vision distortion and sometimes loss of saline pocket behind the lens. I use these drops at night and 15 minutes before lens insertion to improve the tear quality and reduce evaporation. This has yielded the longest lasting relief. I still use other drops periodically through the day but less frequently. I find the Retaine formula can cause some cloudiness if used too often while wearing contacts.
