Optixcare Eye Lubricant is a moisturizing ophthalmic lubricant in a carbomer gel.
The gel swells in the presence of tears and changes the consistency to a clear, water-like suspension over the surface of the eye. This causes the gel to cling to the surface of the eye and ease your pet's dry eye discomfort. Optixcare Eye Lubricant is intended for use on dogs, cats and horses.

optixcare by dog lover from Philadelphia11/06/2013
Been using this product since my cavalier had a bad eye infection. The 15g tube was much better as it was sealed when you opened the package and so you could snip off the end in a way to control the size of drop. The new 25 g tube is not sealed when purchased and the drop that comes out is so large that the larger tube lasts no longer than the smaller tube.
Also,as you get to the bottom of the tube, no matter how you try to get the contents to the nozzle, the contents come out with a blast of air which probably does not feel so good on my dog's eye. Another thing I noticed is that he used to like getting the drops. Now he runs away. I wonder if the ingredients have been changed and the new stuff hurts his eyes.
This eye gel is a good lubricant, but the tube should be made more like a tootpaste tube, so you can accurately use the gel. When you first start using this, it comes out too fast, and when it gets low, you can't squeeze the bottom, so you loose a lot of product.
Dry eye relief by poes4me from Oh06/05/2013
Opthamologist prescribed along w/other eye ointments. After 6 weeks, one eye responds well to all ointments, but other developed an immunity, as it has with every ointment used on that eye. However, this lubricant has provided the longest lasting relief, AND minus the "gook" buildup so many other ointments cause.
Great Product by Cookie R. from Ohio03/18/2014
Our beagle has one prosthetic eye and in order to keep her from getting ulcers on this eye, we use Optixcare daily. It is easy to use and in our opinion the right consistency. Not running everywhere like a regular eye drop and not a thick ointment that is hard to get into a dogs eye. It is just right for getting in the eye and staying there.Thus a well lubricated eye stays health, even if it is a prosthetic.

My Toy Poodle has had eye problems for over 10 years. The veterinary ophthalmologist prescribed Optixcare (2 Drops per day). This medicine has always worked fine. The new size is also more economical.
