Non-Preserved Drops, All Natural Ingredients

The surface of the eye, and tear film, naturally maintains a delicate balance to ensure good eye health and vision. The tear film also protects the surface of the eye from damage, which in modern society includes environmental toxins, air-conditioning, prolonged computer use, a poor diet, and systemic diseases and medications.


Being constantly exposed to these threats, it is easy for our eyes to slip out of balance, resulting in tired, heavy, stinging, watery or red eyes, with varying degrees of visual fluctuations and discomfort. This also leaves you prone to infections, like conjunctivitis.


Standard methods of restoration and maintenance of this delicate balance includes a healthy diet, over-the-counter ocular lubricant “dry eye drops”, and prescribed anti-infective and anti-inflammatory eye drops.


At Envision Optical, we understand how the natural tear film works, and how important this layer is for your eyes and your vision. For that reason, we are constantly striving to provide all the possible solutions to treat your eyes, providing a specialised approach of specific ocular lubricants, humidifying goggles, natural Manuka honey based eye drops, or dry-eye specific Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy.


We are proud to be one of the first practices on the Gold Coast to use Oculocin Propo eye drops, a non-preservative eye drop made from Chamomile, Aloe Vera and Propolis. Evidence based literature on the effectiveness of these natural constituents, and their anti-inflammatory and anti-infective properties, is widely known, and we can now provide this in a easy and effective eye drop.


We have found it’s effectiveness with patients with chronic dry eye, who do not get any prolonged relief from standard ‘dry-eye drops’. We have also found it effective with treating children who are suffering from blepharitis or conjunctivitis, avoiding the need to use chemicals and prescription antibiotics.


Oculocin Propo utilises nature, to provide a safe and effective way to treat your eyes.
