After applying the spray to the eyes, blinking distributes liposomes evenly over the aqueous layer of the tear form.

Patients can use the the Optrex Blink Test to identify the symptoms of dry eye, and treatments — including eye drops and liposomal eye sprays — can be used to manage these symptoms.
