Various studies have found that high-molecular-weight HA protects corneal epithelial cells against different types of damage, such as ultraviolet solar radiation,39 preservatives present in ophthalmic solutions such as benzalkonium chloride (BAK),39 and irritants found in shampoos and other personal hygiene products.

High-molecular-weight HA has a reparative effect on the ocular surface, stimulating epithelial migration41,42 and inhibiting the expression of proinflammatory mediators such as interleukin (IL)-6 and IL-8.38

Therefore, a highly viscous solution has a higher ocular residence time and better contact of the product with the cornea and other ocular structures.
