SALVAT launches Relive Total Care


SALVAT launches Relive® TOTAL CARE, the first eye drops for complete eye care following surgery

More than 500,000 eye operations are performed in Spain every year, causing damage to the outermost layer of the cornea to a greater or lesser extent. Preventing the potential undesired effects of poor postoperative re-epithelialisation, like the haze effect or keratitis; protecting the parts of the eye that have become hypersensitive following surgery from light damage; and providing optimal hydration during the post-operative period are the benefits that the new Relive® TOTAL CARE offers both to ophthalmic surgeons and to the more than half a million people who undergo cataract operations, vision correction surgery and other types of eye surgery in Spain every year.

The synergistic effect of the three active ingredients of Relive® TOTAL CARE (cyanocobalamin, 8-hydroxyquinoline-5-sulfonic acid and polyvinylpyrrolidone PVP K30®) give rise to a triple effect (re-epithelialisation + protection + hydration), demonstrated in numerous in vitro and in vivo product trials. In its three areas of activity, Relive® TOTAL CARE has been shown to be better and more effective than other compounds currently used subsequent to eye surgery, including artificial tears and the combination of hyaluronic acid and actinoquinol.

The rate of corneal re-epithelialisation of up to 83% of the damaged area within 24 hours of surgery, and more comprehensive protection against UV radiation (UVA and UVB), represent the two main advantages of this new formulation. Relive® TOTAL CARE also ensures essential post-operative ocular hydration, replacing the need for artificial tears or other products for dry eyes during the recommended period of use of one to two weeks following surgery. Relive® TOTAL CARE is made from ingredients that ensure optimal hydration and lubrication and that, as the product trials clearly show, provide significantly better hydration levels than hyaluronic acid 0.15%, currently one of the most frequently used active ingredients to combat post-operative ocular dryness.

Relive® TOTAL CARE is preservative-free and is available in packs of 20 single-use sterile doses.

Its ingredients render the liquid a characteristic pink but completely transparent when applied to the surface of the eye and compatible with contact lenses. Its recommended period of use is one to two weeks at a dose of one or two drops in each eye affected, four times a day.
