Add-on treatment to antihypertensive glaucoma therapy
COQUN® is an add-on treatment to antihypertensive glaucoma therapy. One of the key ways glaucoma presents is a build-up of pressure in the eye. There is evidence that this pressure stresses the nerve cells in the back of the eye (retina) called Retinal Ganglion Cells (RGCs). RGCs transmit messages from the eyes to the brain, and are therefore crucial for sight. Once RGCs die they are not replaced – so they need looking after.
COQUN® helps to protect the RGCs by providing additional energy to the cells and through CoQ1O’s antioxidant properties.
• Contains two antioxidant molecules to counter oxidative damages related to antihypertensive glaucoma:
− Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
− Vitamin E TPGS
• Preservative free multi dose bottle
• Contact lens friendly
• Remains sterile for 60 days after opening
The cells in the retina require more energy than any other cell in the body. As we age, we may not have enough naturally occurring CoQ10 to energise these cells or to help them cope with stress that they experience through glaucoma.
Research has shown that our levels of CoQ10 in the retina can decline by up to 40% as we get older.
CoQ1O occurs naturally in the body and is found in every one of our cells where it fulfils two essential functions:
Once you have been diagnosed with glaucoma, your ophthalmologist may have prescribed you eye drops that help reduce the pressure in your eyes. These will help reduce the stress on the optic nerve. Now you can also add COQUN® to your daily eye care routine. COQUN® works in a different way and complements the drops you have been prescribed. COQUN® helps by providing additional CoQ1O directly to the eye, which may help to protect the Retinal Ganglion Cells by providing energy and through its antioxidant properties.
Please note that COQUN® is NOT a replacement for pressure lowering (antihypertensive) glaucoma drops.
It is important to wait at least ten minutes after applying prescription pressure lowering drops before applying COQUN®. Please see package insert for more information.
