Polyacrylic acid is a hydrophilic, high molecular weight polymer of carboxyvinylic acid. The gel forms a transparent lubricating and moistening film on the surface of the eye. The preparation has a pH similar to that found in the normal tear film and is slightly hypotonic with respect to tears. Polyacrylic acid relieves the symptoms of irritation linked with dry eye syndromes and protects the cornea against drying out.
