RESTASIS (cyclosporine ophthalmic emulsion) 0.05%

Restasis is an exciting new treatment for Dry Eye Disease, a painful and irritating condition. Restasis drops help the eyes produce more tears by reducing inflammation, which is often a cause of dry eye. Unlike artificial tears, Restasis is the first drug proven to effectively treat a cause of Dry Eye Disease rather than only temporarily alleviate symptoms.

Restasis is for those:

  • whose tear production is suppressed due to inflammation caused by dry eye disease
  • whose doctor has determined that Restasis is the appropriate treatment for their condition

About the treatment:

If your doctor prescribes Restasis, you'll probably use one drop in each eye every 12 hours. There is presently no cure for Dry Eye Disease; however, you will receive benefits from Restasis for as long as you continue its use. Restasis can be used with artificial tear products, but your need for these will most likely decrease as your eyes improve.

Realistic expectations:

The most common side effect of Restasis is a temporary burning sensation. Patients with an active eye infection or those who have allergies to any of the ingredients should not use Restasis. Keep in mind that Restasis is a treatment, not a cure. There is presently no cure for Dry Eye Disease.

If you and your doctor decide that Restasis is an option for you, you will be given additional information about the treatment that will allow you to make an informed decision about whether to proceed.

If you would like more information about this treatment you can make an appointment, contact the office or visit the Allergan website.
