Systane Balance Lubricating Eye drops

Alcon Canada has recently released that Canadians will now have access to their newest formulated dry eye lubricating drop. Beginning after June 15, 2011 Systane Balance will be available for patients with dry eye syndrome secondary to meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), a common cause of dry eye.

If you’re interested in being one of the first people in Sherwood Park to try Systane Balance on your dry eyes then book an eye exam with one of the optometrists at eye-bar. Patients with dry eyes secondary to meibomian gland dysfunction will be given a FREE retail sized bottle of Systane Balance eye drops (while supplies last) to use. Patients will then be asked to complete a short questionnaire on product satisfaction and symptom relief.

At eye-bar optometry we believe that you should not have to suffer from your dry eyes. Book an eye exam or dry eye consultation with one of our optometrists.
