what to expect
Individuals results may vary.


It could take 3 to 6 months to notice you are making
more of your own real tears

Just as it took time for your type of real Dry Eye disease to develop, it will take time for RESTASIS® to help you make more of your own real tears. With regular use of RESTASIS®, it can take 3-6 months to notice you are making more of your own real tears. Use one drop of RESTASIS® twice a day in each eye, 12 hours apart—every day.

You may experience some degree of temporary
burning and stinging

This may be a response to treatment. If you have concerns, or this persists,
follow up with your eye doctor immediately.

Ophthalmic Emulsion) 0.05% helps increase your eyes’ natural ability to produce tears, which may be reduced by inflammation due to Chronic Dry Eye. RESTASIS® did not increase tear production in patients using anti-inflammatory eye drops or tear duct plugs.

Important Safety Information
