Currently, there are many preparations for moisturizing the ocular surface on the market. Due to the complex symptomatology of dry eye syndrome, it turns out that choosing the right agent is neither so simple nor so obvious. In dry eye syndrome, we can distinguish several stages in which the treatment may or even must be different. In mild conditions where the tear film becomes unstable without tissue damage, we can use numerous available products that are characterized by high safety and high efficiency. However, when tissue damage occurs, especially if there is a risk of further progression of ocular surface damage that may lead to visual disturbances, we must find products that optimize protection. Their additional feature should be the ability to support regenerative ability and stabilize all tissues that restore the healthy ocular surface. The main goal is to rebuild the so-called tear film homeostasis, which is the first condition for restoring the balance of the ocular surface.
