Alcon brings Balance eye drops to Latin America

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

By the end of 2010, Alcon plans to distribute in Latin America Systane Balance Lubricant Eye Drops for consumers who have dysfunctional meibomian glands, a condition commonly linked to dry eye syndrome. The Swiss firm said Oct. 11 Systane Balance contains hydroxypropyl-guar - derived from the Guar galactomannan water-soluble polysaccharide - borate, sorbitol, propylene glycol and Alcon's LipiTech System, an emulsion technology of mineral oil and an anionic phospholipid. Alcon designed the product to restore the lipid layer and the natural tear film to allow for relief of dry eye symptoms. Tear film instability can occur when meibomian glands in eyelids do not secrete adequate amounts of lipid to seal the aqueous tears and prevent evaporation. Alcon launched the product in the U.S. in July. A 10-mL bottle of Systane Balance is available online for $12.99 and a two-bottle pack for $19.99
