Didn't know I had dry eye until I was examined by my optometrist. Since using Restasis, my eyes feel dry, itchy, like I have sand in my eyes...in fact they feel worse than before I started using this product. My new Ophthalmologist recent suggested that I put Systane ointment in my eyes just prior to going to bed...to seal what she believes is a slit between my upper and lower eyelids (they ...

Comment:
My eyes were so dry before I started Restasis, that I often came home from work and would just sit on the couch with my eyes closed because they would hurt so bad. They always felt so tired even though I was putting in eye drops almost every hour. I started Restasis 3 weeks ago and in the last few days, I'm noticing my eyes feel much better! I never had any burning from the drops like other u ... Show Full Comment

Since starting restasis, I now have severe redness and soreness of eyelid and corners of my eye, constant tears running down my cheeks, blurred vision and severe problems readi ... Show Full Comment

I have had dry eye for 10 months since switching to multi-focal contact lenses. I used OTC drops many times a day and ointment at night but nothing seemed to help. I've been on restasis 2 days now and my voice is hoarse, I have post nasal drip, red eyes and burning I didn't have before. Fortunately my copay was only $20 so expense is not my concern. I am concerned about using an immune ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
DAY ONE: I read the reviews and became hesitant. But my eyes are so very dry. I used my regular otc drops first, chilled the vials slightly, and used re stasis for this first time. Then I closed my eyes & gently massaged my eyes for a moment. (Thanks for the tips!) I have horrible allergies and burning from time to time - Especially from scents, tobacco, tires, etc. So far for this first tim ... Show Full Comment
