Cationorm® is a first-of-a-kind eye drop that acts like the body’s natural tears to provide long-lasting relief from the uncomfortable symptoms of dry eyes.

Unlike traditional eye drops which may wash away quickly, Cationorm® uses ionic technology to attract its positively charged solution to the negatively charged surface of the eye, locking in hydration for longer.

Kind to even sensitive eyes, Cationorm® is preservative free and is suitable for everyday use and for contact lens wearers. Always read the label.
