Lacrisert has made my life so much better. With them, I can get about 8 to 10 hours a day symptom free. After that, they begin to lose effect. I have Sjogrens. I have punctal plugs and was using drops all day long. Now I only use drops occasionally. Huge improvement!

I have been using the Lacrisert for about 4 weeks and have been pleased with the results. The only side effect that I seem to have is that my nose runs constantly. Has anyone else had this problem, and if so have you found a solution? At this point the relief from the dry eye far outweight the runny nose.

They will save my sight.

I have been using Lacriserts a few months for treatment of dry eye caused by Sjogren's Syndrome. It takes about 6 hours before they become effective, but my eyes feel much better all afternoon. I can actually go several hours without drops.

This is the only thing that gives me any relief from my dry eyes associated with Sjogren's Syndrome. Much more effective than Restasis. I put them in every morning and don't think about them or notice them all day. If I forget them, my eyes are burning by lunchtime so much that I can't read or drive.
