Anti-inflammation eye drops Restasis contains cyclosporine that suppresses the immune system. Cyclosporine increases the number of tears produced by the eye(s) that have been reduced by inflammation.
The eye's surface needs tears to remain healthy. Chronic Dry eye syndrome is characterized by a lack of tears produced by the eye. Dry eye disease is treatable, fortunately. Among the most effective medication for Chronic Dry Eyes is Restasis eye drops.
A key component of Restasis is cyclosporine. According to some researchers, it works by keeping the patient's tear ducts and eyes from inflaming. As a result, the patient's body will naturally make more tears, moisturizing their eyes and reducing dry eyes symptoms.
The effects of Restasis have been shown to reduce chronic dry eye symptoms.
Restasis eye drops should be used exactly as prescribed by the doctor. A patient's prescription label contains all the instructions patients need to follow. One should use the eye drops only as directed without increasing or decreasing the dose.
One drop per eye is usually administered twice daily. Patients should use Restasis eye drops every 12 hours. Patients must read all patient information, medications guides, and instructions. Any questions patients may have should be directed to their doctor or pharmacist.
Using this and other eye drops requires patients to wash their hands first.
One should shake the bottle up and down a couple of times to properly blend the medicine. It should appear white before the patient can apply it.
Patients should create a small pocket with the lower eyelid by tilting the head back a little and pulling it down. The tip of the dropper should be held above the eye. They should then grasp the dropper and squeeze a drop into the eyelid pouch.
They should then close their eyes for two or three minutes without blinking or squinting. Pressing a finger gently on the corners of the eyes for about a minute can help keep the medicine from leaking out.
It is not advisable to use artificial tears or any other eye drops unless the doctor has prescribed them.
Eye droppers should not be touched or placed directly on the eyes. Patients could develop serious vision problems if the eye becomes infected by a contaminated dropper.
Restasis can be used by children 16 and older. It can, however, not be used by children under the age of 16. This age group has yet to be studied for Restasis safety and effectiveness.
Restasis stimulates the production of natural tears in the patient's eyes. Restasis can be used with lubricating eye drops since it takes Restasis a few weeks to achieve results. If patients are experiencing dry eye symptoms, lubricating eye drops may help.
Cyclosporine applied to the eyes is rarely affected by other drugs that patients take orally or via injection. There is, however, the possibility of drug interactions. Patients should ensure that their healthcare providers know about all medications patients take, including over-the-counter and prescription medications, vitamins, and herbal products.
