Restasis Eye Drops

What is Restasis for dry eyes?

Restasis is a prescription eye drop that we prescribe to our Plano, TX patients who suffer from mild to severe cases of dry eyes. It is one of the two FDA approved eye drops (along with Xiidra). The typical tear has oil, water, and mucin in it. When production of these chemicals are low, it causes the eyes to become dry, teary, or red. This is known as dry eyes. When you suffer from dry eyes, the eyes become inflamed. Restasis is designed to help the lacrimal gland in your eye's natural ability to produce tears and reduce inflammation.

Some patients also use Xiidra for the full effect. Restasis is a prescription drug and is thus not covered by insurance. For more details, including pricing, give us a call.
