After battling Sjorgren's for many many years, I have found fantastic relief after only using Restatis for only 1 month. I have stopped using all other eye drops & ointments. However, I have been having sore thorats, post nasal drip and headaches which began about the time I started the eye drops. I'm not sure if they are related but sadly after reading other reviews I believe so. H ... Show Full Comment

I tried this drug initially 2 years ago for severe dry eye. At that time I used it for two months with no results. Six weeks ago my eye doctor insisted I try again, using it in conjunction with lotemax, warm eye compresses, and fish oil capsules. I have been extremely faithful to the regimine, only missing on average one to two nights a week on the warm compresses, and have had no results. I have ... Show Full Comment

I think that restasis is effective for reducing dryness in my eyes, but my vision is getting so bad since I started taking it. I'm going to stop using it in hope that it'll improve. It's like looking through a dirty window-very unclear vision. It started after about the 1st four weeks.

I have been using Restasis for about 3 weeks. So far I am experiencing burning when applied about 90% of the time. I still experience scratching at night. It takes about 4-6 hours for my eyes to adjust after using. Reading becomes difficult in the early hours of the day, clearing up by mid day.

Comment:
I have worn contacts for 40 years; after menopause my eyes became very irritated; after treating the inflammation with steroid drops, I again got reflux tearing. The ophthalmologist recommended only using preservative free lubricating drops, Occusoft cleanser weekly, and warm compresses daily for blocked meibomian glands. After this was improved, I started on Restasis with great results. Within a ... Show Full Comment
