VitA-POS Preservative-Free Eye Ointment 5g Vat Exemption Available VitA-POS is a cost effective, preservative free ointment that contains Vitamin A in a light paraffin base. Its easy to use and ideal for night-time use.

While we are asleep, no tears are produced. If you suffer from dry eye, this can lead to a painful awakening, resulting in the eyelids sticking together and unpleasant incrustations forming. The conjunctiva and the skin of the edges of the eyelids can also become irritated and inflamed due to friction.

What is VitA-POS eye ointment?
VitA-POS is a preservative-free ointment containing vitamin A to help protect the cornea and conjunctiva during the night and to aid regeneration. Due to its smooth, gel-like texture VitA-POS moisturises your eyes in an optimal way while you are asleep. Furthermore the eye lids are kept smooth and crusting around the eye is prevented. VitA-POS eye ointment remains in the eye for up to 6 hours, enabling optimal moisturisation during the night. VitA-POS eye ointment can be used for up to 6 months after first opening.

VitA-POS eye ointment is suitable for adults and children of all age groups and can also be used during pregnancy and breast-feeding.
VitA-POS is ointment based and designed for night time use, and so should not be used while wearing contact lenses. Please ensure you take out your lenses before using VitA-POS and wait for at least 15 minutes after treatment before putting them back.

Vitamin A is required for normal growth maintenance and maturation of corneal epithelium and is therefore effective in the treatment of xerophthalmic and "experimental" corneal wounds when applied topically

• Preservative free, phosphate free and therefore very well tolerated
• Remains sterile for 6 months from opening
• Very cost effective with 300 applications in one 5g tube
• Excellent duration of action offering at least 6 hours of comfort
• Vitamin A is part of the natural tear film and as such is very well tolerated as a lubricant
• It provides lubrication to the eye surface for at least 6 hours

Directions for use:
Apply a small strand of VitA-POS along the lid into the conjunctival sac every day before going to bed. Do not allow the tip of the tube to touch the eye.

Excellent product for dry eye sufferers. I use it as an overnight ointment and my eyes feel comfortable in the morning. I also understand that the Vitamin A content can help to protect and improve the condition of the cornea, if you have problems in this area. Service from Healthcare4All was very good - very prompt delivery.

An excellent replacement for Lacrilube, one which I will probably continue use in preference to L'lube in the future. Provides good lubrication and appears to be longer lasting than L'lube. A good petroleum based lubricating treatment not to be confused with water based offerings which clean rather than lubricate the eye. Excellent product.

I bought this when Lacrilube became unavailable and am finding it really good. Having to tape my eye closed at night to prevent damage means that I need a good gel/cream on before I do this.

I had to find an alternative urgently when lacrilube became unavailable. Having tried all the liquid alternatives my GP suggested, none worked for my seriously dry eyes. I wanted something lanolin based like lacrilube so decided to try VitA Pos. It\'s slightly thicker than lacrilube but works better and lasts all day. Eyes are slightly blurry at first but if I wipe any residue off my eyelashes, it clears straight away. It\'s also easier to get out of the tube and doesn\'t carry on creeping out w..
