How to Use Restasis How to Use Restasis

Treating your type of Chronic Dry Eye with RESTASIS® takes time and consistent use. Take one drop in each eye twice a day, every day, at least 12 hours apart.

It may take 3 months for some patients to begin noticing an increase in tear production, with significant increase in tear production at 6 months. Individual results may vary.

To help you prepare for either your face-to-face or telehealth appointment, take our quiz and share your results with an eye doctor.
