Counter display units launched for Clinitas

New practice aid contains patient leaflets to help dispensing for dry eye

Altacor Clinitas Counter Display Unit

Altacor has launched a new Clinitas Counter Display Unit to help support practice sales. It features a holder at the back containing patient literature about the Clinitas range that targets the causes of dry eye and provides relief from its symptoms.

Altacor’s director of sales and marketing, Chris Miller, said: “This is a cost effective way for opticians to purchase all the Clinitas products and store them conveniently on their counter units, making dispensing simpler.”

The range includes Clinitas Soothe and Clinitas Soothe Multi, which contain preservative-free 0.4% sodium hyaluronate – the highest available concentration in the UK, according to the company.

Launched last year in a multi-dose 10ml bottle, Clinitas Soothe Multi now offers patients a choice of convenient and easy to carry re-sealable droppers, which last up to 12 hours. There is also an alternative bottle that provides up to 250 drops and can be used for up to three months once opened.

Clinitas Hydrate is a gel that increases the tear volume to lubricate and comfort the eye for up to six hours, making it recommended for overnight use and on waking.

The new counter display unit contains six boxes each of Clinitas Soothe Unit Dose (20 x 0.5ml), Clinitas Soothe Multi (10ml) and Clinitas Hydrate (10g tube), as well as 10 Clinitas Soothe Sample Wallets (five vials) and 30 patient leaflets on dry eye.
