TREATING CHRONIC
DRY EYE

Chronic Dry Eye Syndrome Treatment Chronic Dry Eye Syndrome Treatment

THERE ARE THREE KEY WAYS TO
TREAT A TYPE OF CHRONIC DRY EYE

1

ARTIFICIAL TEARS

Artificial tears/over-the-counter eye drops, such as REFRESH® Lubricant Eye Drops, can provide only temporary relief, but do not increase your eyes' natural ability to make their own tears. Artificial tears can be combined with prescription RESTASIS®; just allow 15 minutes between use.

2

TEAR DUCT OR
PUNCTAL PLUGS

Plugs are inserted by an eye doctor to close the ducts that drain tears from your eyes.

3

RESTASIS®

With continued use twice a day, every day, RESTASIS® may help increase your eyes' natural ability to produce tears,* which may be reduced by inflammation due to Chronic Dry Eye.

*Increased tear production was seen at 6 months.

GET THE MOST OUT OF
YOUR APPOINTMENT

SCHEDULE A MEDICAL EXAM

When booking your appointment, make sure the office staff lists it as a medical exam and not an annual vision exam. Medical insurance pays for medical exams that check for eye diseases such as Chronic Dry Eye. Vision insurance only pays for routine exams. Eye doctors accept both vision and medical insurance, depending on the reason for your visit.

PREP FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT

Get ready for your appointment by taking the Chronic Dry Eye Quiz. After taking the quiz, you’ll receive a personalized discussion guide that you can share with your eye doctor.

MAKE YOUR VISIT COUNT

Tell your eye doctor that you want to get screened for a type of Chronic Dry Eye disease. After the screening, ask for your results and see if RESTASIS® may be right for you.
