Frontline staff at a number of hospital trusts around the UK have benefitted from donation of hundreds of bottles of eye drops from Avizor. The global eyecare manufacturer has handed over almost 1,000 bottles of Lacrifresh Ocu-Dry Eye Drops – a product designed to provide prolonged relief of dry eye symptoms. The donation, worth almost £9,000, is helping ease any dry eye symptoms being experienced by healthcare staff in the UK. Avizor UK General Manager Gary Daniels said: “Throughout the COVID-19 outbreak we have been looking at and admiring the work being done by those on the frontline of the NHS and asking ourselves, ‘how can we help?’ “Those working on the frontline to help combat this awful virus are doing an incredible job and it’s vital we all do what we can to protect their health as they strive to protect ours. We wanted to do our bit to allow the heroes of our NHS to focus on saving lives, giving them peace of mind and day-long comfort from dry and irritated eyes.” The products were donated to staff working on the wards of hospital including Northampton General Hospital and the Great Western Hospital in Swindon. Brian Tompkins, director of Tompkins, Knight & Son Optometrists which assisted with the donation to Northampton General Hospital, said: “We were delighted to assist Avizor with this very generous donation and we hope it eases any eye irritation experienced by staff at NGH.” Avizor has been developing and manufacturing contact lens care and ocular health products for more than 35 years, with a range of contact lens solutions and dry eye preparations now available in more than 70 countries worldwide.
