Sodium perborate (GenAqua) is an oxidative preservative that is used in Genteal lubricating eye drops (Novartis Ophthalmics, East Hanover, NJ). With topical application, sodium perborate is converted by catalase to water, oxygen, and hydrogen peroxide. Its antimicrobial properties are attributed to oxidization of cell membranes, membrane-bound enzymes, and disruption of protein synthesis. Also, sodium perborate has demonstrated efficacy against Aspergillus niger.
