My eyes were driving me crazy with the burning, hurting and feeling like a foreign object was in them. Went to an ophthamologist who diagnosed "no infection," recommended artificial tears and sent me on my way. Very expensive and not very helpful. Tried various brands of artificial tears and gels.

This has been a miracle drug for me. I had been using artificial tears every 1 1/2 hours. Started using Restasis - zero side effects - and within 3 weeks could cut back to artificial tears once every 2 hours, and after 6 weeks once every 2 1/2 hours.

Comment:
I have been taking Restasis for about 9 months. I have Sicca Syndrom and I can tell a big difference when I use the tear drop. I have not had any side affects, with the exception of the stinging. I have even been able to stop using my OTC drops as frequently. Also, one thing to ask your doctor about is plugging your punctals if you have severe dry eye. Good luck to all who use this product, ... Show Full Comment
