These ingredients have been used for centuries worldwide for various health issues and in these eye drops they play an important role in the protection and comfort of the ocular surface. The lubricating ingredient Glycerin helps stabilize the ocular surface and protects it from drying out. VIZOOVET has a naturally effective, triple action for dry eyes:
VIZOOVET is available in convenient unit dose vials which can be re-sealed and safely used for up to 24 hours. The sterile eye drops are preservative free, phosphate free and pH neutral. Use 2 drops per day for 10 days and then as necessary.
One ACVO had this to say:
“I use it on unresponsive neurogenic KCS. Very painful eyes. Owner calling saying the dog is much more comfortable after medication started.”
For KCS, allergic conjunctivitis and corneal erosion. VIZOOVET drops the tear osmolarity down to it's normal level and relieves the pain in a very short time.

KCS, Dry Eye, Eye Drops for Dogs
Many eye problems can be managed by a general practice veterinarian (DVM or VMD). However, if the veterinarian believes that the patient would benefit from the skills and experience of a specialist, the patient may be referred to a veterinary ophthalmologist for additional care. Problems typically referred can include: perceived cataracts, glaucoma, retinal diseases, severe injuries, and cancer of the eye.
Just as with human medicine, veterinary medical specialists are becoming a valuable resource in treating your pet. Your general practice veterinarian has excellent training in veterinary medicine and acts as a family practice physician to your pet. But just as with human medicine, there are occasions when your veterinarian might want assistance or suggest a referral to a specialist to better meet your pet's needs.
Many eye diseases are time sensitive so prompt consultation or referral is often in your animal's best interest.
