Making Your Own Real Tears Matters

RESTASIS Lake Forest ILRESTASIS® (Cyclosporine Ophthalmic Emulsion) 0.05% is the only prescription eye drop that helps increase your eyes’ natural ability to produce tears, which may be reduced by inflammation due to Chronic Dry Eye disease. RESTASIS® did not increase tear production in patients using anti-inflammatory eye drops or tear duct plugs.

Knowing What To Expect Is Important

Just as it took time for your type of Chronic Dry Eye to develop, it will take time for RESTASIS® to help you produce your own real tears. Be patient, because it could take 3 to 6 months after beginning therapy for you to notice an increase in tear production.

Your use of artificial tears may decrease as you begin to produce more of your own tears. Individual results may vary.
You may experience a temporary burning sensation when you use RESTASIS® Ophthalmic Emulsion. This may be a response to treatment. If you have concerns, or this persists, follow up with your eye doctor immediately.
