Where is Lacritec manufactured?

It is made in Australia. We source only the highest standard ingredients. It is manufactured under the highest therapeutic standards (GMP) in a manufacturing facility regularly audited for compliance.


Why can’t I buy Lacritec in a Pharmacy or other retail outlets?

Our goal is to keep the cost to customers as low as possible. Knowing many of our patients are on retirement savings or CPF incomes we made a conscious decision to have the most cost effective method for patients to purchase Lacritec for Dry Eyes without paying a typical retailer margin. By returning to your Eye Care Specialist you can make significant savings and ensure you are getting the correct product for your condition.

Do I take 2 or 3 capsules per day?

The dosage can vary both due to your weight and the severity of the symptoms. We recommend all patients to start at 3 per day for the first month to 6 weeks, the dosage can then be reduced to 2 per day, and if symptoms reappear or get worse the dosage can be increased back up to 3 per day.

Do I have to take them 2 – 3 times per day, separately, or with food?

This depends on your individual response.  You may take the daily dose of Lacritec all at once if you tolerate them well, otherwise you may find that it is better them at mealtime. Some people like to split them and have 2 in the evening or morning and 1 at night.

Are there any side effects from Lacritec?

There are no known serious side effects from Lacritec. As with any product it is possible for certain individuals to have a reaction to individual ingredients. If you have any specific concerns please contact us directly or speak to your Doctor.

What improvement will I see?

Unlike eye drops Lacritec works systemically (ie from within your body) and can take 6-8 weeks to develop its full effect.  Remember to get the full effect of  Lacritec, it has to be taken every day at the correct dose.  It is also important to stay on the treatment to get the benefit.

Can I keep taking a multivitamin when I take Lacritec?

Yes you can, there is no need to worry about overdosing on individual ingredients.
