Not-so-new eyedrops:

Struggling with chronic dry eyes that isn’t improving with regular eyedrops?

Restasis works by inhibiting inflammatory markers that drive dry eye that normal over the counter artificial tears do not treat. Due to its mechanism of action, Restasis can take up to 3 months to start relieving dryness in the eyes. It is recommend to continue with regular dry eye treatment during those 3 months.


Xiidra is an effective dry eye treatment for chronic dry eye symptoms that also has anti-inflammatory properties, but can provide relief faster than Restasis. If you’re struggling with dry eyes that is not improving with regular use of artificial tears and warm compresses, talk to your optometrist about other treatment options.
