Orchatears plus® eye drops contains i) polyvidone (polyvinyl pyrollidone)
which is a well-established artificial tear substitute with mucomimetic properties and ii) electrolytes similar to natural tears. The latter contributes to enhanced performance in the treatment of dry eyes since electrolytes can play an important role in the efficacy of artificial tear substitutes.
