Lacriserts have given me back my life. Before I used them, I was in too much pain to read or use a computer. I wore dark goggle almost all day. I still wear dark glasses at time now, but I am so much better with Lacriserts.

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!

Comment:
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.

Comment:
I had used Lacriserts in my eyes for Sjogrens Syndrome since the late 80's. Then they quite making them. My eyes have gone through a trama time while using other products plus having my tear ducts plugged. I just learned that there is now a generic out and I am excited. I will be using them again. They will save my sight.

Comment:
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.
