How To Use RESTASIS®

Use Twice a Day in Each Eye, 12 Hours Apart—
Every Day

Eye Drops in the AM and PM

Keep Using Artificial Tears As Needed

  • Allow 15 minutes between use of RESTASIS®
    and any artificial tear

  • As you make more of your own real tears, you may
    need artificial tears less. Individual results may vary

REFRESH® Lubricant Eye Drops

Give RESTASIS® Time to Start Helping You Make More Tears

  • Just as it took time for your type of Dry Eye disease to develop, it will take time for RESTASIS® to help you make more of your own real tears.

  • In a 6-month study, patients made significantly more of their own real tears.

You may experience a temporary burning sensation when you first start
using RESTASIS® Ophthalmic Emulsion. This may be a response to
treatment. If this continues, call your eye doctor.

Approved Use
RESTASIS® (Cyclosporine
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
Do not use RESTASIS® Ophthalmic Emulsion if you are allergic to any of the ingredients. To help avoid eye injury and contamination, do not touch the vial tip to your eye or other surfaces. See more below >
