Optimel Manuka Honey Forte eye gel is for use on the lid margin to help stabilise the health of the eye and relieve the symptoms of dry eyes, blepharitis and irritated eyelids. They are designed to be used AS WELL AS lubricating eye drops, not as an alternative.

Designed primarily to be applied along the lid margins, but can be applied into the lower lid pocket too.

Manuka Honey assists the surface health of the eye by creating a micro-environment that supports healing and prevents further damage. When applied to the lid margin, Optimel Manuka Honey Forte eye gel aids eye lid-margin hygiene, softening any crusts that form and lowing the pH environment helping reduce lid margin bacteria and the consequential inflammation around the meibomian gland ducts.

Reduced tear production and meibomian gland disease can increase the bacteria present in the eye, contributing to the tear film instability and eye surface damage. Applying Optimel Manuka Honey Forte eye gel 3 times a day can significantly improve the situation within a month.

PLEASE NOTE: stinging after using Optimel Manuka Honey Forte eye gel is to be expected but should be short-lived. Mild redness can occur too.

  • Single patient use only
  • Serious conditions should be managed under the supervision of an eye care professional.
  • For any reaction other than transient stinging and redness, cease use and contact your eye care professional.
  • DO NOT use if you have a history of hypersensitivity or sensitivity to honey, food gums without seeking medical advice.
  • DO NOT insert whilst wearing contact lenses. Wait at least 30 minutes before inserting lenses.
