Zirgan helped me quickly and without discomfort. Liked delicate action. The course was completely in accordance with the instructions - as the doctor recommended. As far as I know, it is generally difficult to fight herpes. And then the eyes. In general, a wonderful tool without any exaggeration. Vitaly M., Nizhny Novgorod

My eyes were sharply inflamed - it turned out to be a herpes manifestation. Ganciclovir helped to cope in the form of an eye gel, although I wear soft contact lenses. At the time of treatment I had to remove them, but I decided to solve the problem very quickly and without side effects. Excellent restores the epithelium of the eye. It was a bit burning, but these little things are tolerable. Tamara U., Moscow
