My wife uses is. It took a little while for the full effect but she thinks it is a life saver. A friend took it and was allergic and had to discontinue after just a few days. My wife has suffered with this dry business for years and this stuff is teh cats meow for her. It's expensive but well worth it to not live with the misery of chronic dry eyes. Geez, I sound like a commercial. Jeff
I tried it for about three months. It burned my eyes all day. I was better off without it so I quit. The best thing I have found for me is fish oil. If you haven't tried a fish oil regimen then I suggest trying it. Three 1000 mg capsules a day.
Restasis is a very good product. It is really a weak antibiotic that has anti-inflammatory properties. The anti-inflammation part is the workhorse. Dry eye problems tend to make themselves worse over time. Restasis knocks down the inflammation and truly increases tear production. The bad news is that you don't expect to have results before 6-8 weeks of proper use and if you quit using it you are back where you were before you started. If you are allergic to the antibiotic, you can't use it. If your Dr. suggested it try it.
I stopped my eyes from years of dryness.
I found that taking a table spoon on coconut oil every day keeps my eyes from dryness.
This has worked wonders for me. It takes few days to build up in my system. After a while I forget to take it because my eyes aren't hurting. Then I start to feel a little dryness so I take a table spoon full or less and the dryness goes away.
