    I was worried about trying this after reading the many negative reviews but have very dry eyes and my opthamologist strongly recommended it. The burning is typically short lived and only seems to occur at night. Been using it for 4 weeks and big improvement. Rarely need to use artificial tears during day now.

    I had Lasik surgery about a year ago and an enhancement to my right eye a month ago. I have had real problems with dry eyes so I was told to use Restasis. I started using the medication Nov. 3rd and now my left eye which was very clear is blurred and my right eye seem blurry as well. I will keep using for few more days, but if my vision continues to deteriorate I will discontinue using and call ... Show Full Comment

    I've been wearing contacts for 15 years so my eyes have gotten more dry over the years. My opthomalogist referred Restasis to help with my tear production so my eyes wouldn't be so dry after lasik surgery. I've been using Restasis twice a day for 1.5 months and I have to admit that it's working pretty well. My eyes aren't as dry after I remove my contacts and wear glasses. It d ... Show Full Comment

    Each vial contains AT LEAST 8 drops. My eye doctor told me to keep the vial refrigerated in a shallow cup & use it for TWO FULL DAYS (1 drop each eye twice each day). I have no problem not touching the tip & contaminating it. SAVE considerable $$$ & product this way!!!

    I had severe dry eye but those symptoms where the tip of the iceberg to other illnesses caused by poor nutrition, bad nourishment, and wrong eating habits mostly due to ignorance or lack of knowledge. The Restasis dealt with the dry eye symptoms but that is not a forever cure. To make a long story short, the money I spent in medicines I now save a lot by investing in a naturopathic health evaluati ... Show Full Comment
