    artificial tears?

Prepare to ask questions

Patient Asking Eye Doctor Questions
  • Do I have Chronic Dry Eye (CDE) disease?
  • Are my eyes making enough of my own tears?
  • What are all my treatment options?
  • Is RESTASIS® right for my type of CDE?

Make Sure You Get Screened on Your Visit

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 >
