Tackle the vicious circle of dry eye

iVIZIA brush line

Dry eye disease can be difficult to effectively treat, and it can be difficult to provide relief for your patients. It is a vicious circle with multiple entry points, but the combination of ingredients in iVIZIA lubricant eye drops can deliver much-needed relief to your patients.

The ingredients in iVIZIA target every entry point of the vicious dry eye circle with 4 actions that enable cells to maintain viability while strengthening the tear film and improving its stability:

  • Osmoregulation—allows the balance of the osmotic pressure on both sides of the cell membrane and thus limits the movement of water4,12
    • Hypotonic formulation designed to combat hyperosmolarity in the tear film
    • Prevents water leakage from cytoplasm (osmoprotection)
  • Stabilizes lipid bilayers13
  • Protects proteins13
  • Prevents denaturation/degeneration of proteins13
  • Induces autophagy (recycling of cell materials) to maintain cell homeostasis and reduce apoptosis (cell death)1,4

The iVIZIA Story

iVIZIA brush line

The iVIZIA commitment to advancing eye care dates back to the 19th century when the Chibret family in France—a family of ophthalmologists and inventors—strived to invent new and safe eye drops.

After its founding in 1994, Laboratoires Théa was among the first eye care companies to introduce preservative-free products, an accomplishment that to this day is unmatched by major competitors. Today, Laboratoires Théa continues its pursuit of solutions that are more efficacious, more ergonomic, and safer. By constantly innovating, Théa has become the market leader in dry eye treatments in Europe.*

Coming together to see a better way

In collaboration with Similasan, a Swiss-based leader in homeopathic OTC products with a focus on eye and ear products, Théa offers its technology and innovative preservative-free products to the US consumer under the iVIZIA brand of products—with iVIZIA lubricant eye drops as the foundation of the product line and formulated to cover the spectrum of dry eye relief.
Made by Théa: let's open our eyes
Brought to you by Similasan: Evidence-Based Eye Care
Results from in vivo studies of iVIZIA and Thealoz® Duo demonstrated the same rheological behaviors and pre-clinical effects between the two products. This means that iVIZIA, which is formulated with povidone, achieves the same results for patients as Thealoz Duo, the #1 prescribed dry eye drops in Europe.25,*
