Gluc Aid Eye Drop


Product introduction

Gluc Aid Eye Drop is a prescription medicine having a combination of medicines that is used for the treatment of pressure in the eyes (ocular hypertension) and glaucoma. It works by decreasing the pressure of fluid in the eye (aqueous humor), which helps in lowering the increased eye pressure.

Gluc Aid Eye Drop is to be used only in the affected eye in the dose and duration as advised by the doctor. Wash your hands before using this medicine. Check the label thoroughly for directions before use. Do not skip any doses and finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better.

The most common side effects include burning sensation, irritation, itching, and redness at the application site. If these side effects persist for a longer duration, inform your doctor. In case by accident, this medicine goes into your ears, nose, or mouth, rinse it off with plenty of water. Avoid driving or operating heavy machinery immediately after using this medicine as it may cause temporary blurring of vision and may affect your ability to drive.

Uses of Gluc Aid Eye Drop

Benefits of Gluc Aid Eye Drop

In Treatment of Ocular hypertension

Ocular hypertension is a condition where the pressure inside the eye is higher than normal eye pressure due to fluid build-up. Gluc Aid Eye Drop increases the flow of fluid from inside the eye into the bloodstream thereby lowering the increased eye pressure. This prevents further damage or complications such as change in vision or even loss of vision. You should only use Gluc Aid Eye Drop in the affected eye and take it regularly as prescribed by your doctor.

In Treatment of Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an eye disease that damages the optic nerve which is essential for proper vision. This damage is often caused by an abnormally high pressure in the eye. Gluc Aid Eye Drop is used to reduce swelling and pressure inside the eye. This helps prevent complications of glaucoma such as blindness and improves the vision. This medicine may be used alone or with other eye drops. Glaucoma cannot be prevented. Frequent monitoring, regular checkups can help detect the disease in its early stages.

Side effects of Gluc Aid Eye Drop

Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them

Common side effects of Gluc Aid

  • Application site reactions (burning, irritation, itching and redness)
  • Blurred vision

How to use Gluc Aid Eye Drop

This medicine is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Hold the dropper close to the eye without touching it. Gently squeeze the dropper and place the medicine inside the lower eyelid. Wipe off the extra liquid.

How Gluc Aid Eye Drop works

Gluc Aid Eye Drop is a combination of two medicines: Timolol and Oxychloro Complex. Timolol is a beta blocker. It works by decreasing the production of aqueous humour (fluid in the eye), thereby lowering the increased eye pressure. Oxychloro Complex is a preservative.

  • Gluc Aid Eye Drop helps lower high pressure in the eye and reduces the risk of vision loss.
  • To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface.
  • After applying Gluc Aid Eye Drop, close your eyes, and place one finger at the corner of your eye. Apply gentle pressure for 1 to 2 minutes before opening your eyes. This will prevent the medication from draining out.
  • Wait for at least 5-10 minutes before delivering the next medication in the same eye to avoid dilution.
  • Make sure to use it within 4 weeks of opening the bottle.
