Top questions about Remend® Corneal Repair Gel
What is a superficial corneal ulcer? What are the clinical signs?

A superficial corneal ulcer or corneal abrasion occurs when the outside layer of the eye (the clear cornea) encounters some sort of trauma, usually via a scratch. This occurs commonly in dogs and cats as they tend to poke their head in areas they are not supposed to. Pets that have a superficial corneal ulcer will typically be squinting or holding the eye shut. The eye may also appear red and have discharge. Ulcers are very painful.

How is a superficial corneal ulcer diagnosed?

A superficial corneal ulcer is something that can only be diagnosed at the veterinarian’s office. If you think your pet is suffering from a superficial corneal ulcer, an urgent trip to the veterinarian is warranted as superficial corneal ulcers are painful and can permanently harm the eye if not addressed.

Warnings: For animal use only. Not to be used as a sole therapy for superficial corneal ulcers; does not contain an antibiotic.

How are superficial corneal ulcers treated?

The mainstay of treating a superficial corneal ulcer is with topical antibiotic therapy in the form of eye drops and pain control. Additionally, there are also other products that can be used as adjunctive therapy in the treatment of superficial corneal ulcers that help the healing process and support the eye. Some of these options include utilizing the benefits of hyaluronic acid (HA).

What is hyaluronic acid (HA)?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance produced by the body that has many roles and functions. It can help support the natural wound healing process, provide lubrication for joints, and help with tissue hydration by holding water. It has been incorporated into many medical products and technologies for a variety of purposes, including cosmetics as well as skin, joint, and eye health.

What is Remend® Corneal Repair Gel?

Remend® Corneal Repair Gel is a topical eye drop that is used to assist in the treatment of superficial corneal ulcers. It utilizes hyaluronic acid that has been medically modified and cross-linked to help support the natural healing process of superficial corneal ulcers in dogs and cats. It is not meant to be used in place of antibiotics or pain control.

Warnings: For animal use only. Not to be used as a sole therapy for superficial corneal ulcers; does not contain an antibiotic.

How does the advanced cross-linked hyaluronic acid technology in Remend® Corneal Repair Gel work?

Despite being clear, the cornea is not all that different from skin. It is made up of a surface layer of cells and supported by a matrix of specialized connective tissue underneath. These cells and corresponding matrix are neatly stacked so that they are clear. When an eye is scratched, a section of these cells are lost creating a gap or divot in the eye. The repair gel helps fill in this gap by providing a framework or scaffolding matrix for the healthy cells around the scratch to slide over and seal the defect. 

Warnings: For animal use only. Not to be used as a sole therapy for superficial corneal ulcers; does not contain an antibiotic.

How is Remend® Corneal Repair Gel applied?

Hands should be washed prior to application to ensure cleanliness. Place 1 to 2 drops directly on the affected eye. Do not touch the tip of the bottle to the eye. The natural movement of the eyelid will distribute the gel over the eye surface. To avoid contamination, do not touch the tip of the container to any surface. Replace cap securely after using.

Warnings: For animal use only. Not to be used as a sole therapy for superficial corneal ulcers; does not contain an antibiotic.

How often must Remend® Corneal Repair Gel be applied?

Drops should be applied a minimum of 2 times each day, or as directed by a veterinarian until resolution.

Warnings: For animal use only. Not to be used as a sole therapy for superficial corneal ulcers; does not contain an antibiotic.
