Restasis® is a topical immunomodulator, shown to increase tearing in patients whose tearing is weakened, presumably due to ocular inflammation associated with dry keratoconjunctivitis. An increase in tearing in patients who are currently using topical anti-inflammatory drugs or using occluders of tear points was not observed.
Restasis® (cyclosporin ophthalmic emulsion) 0.05% helps to increase the ability of the eyes to naturally produce tears, reduced due to inflammation, which
caused by chronic dry eyes. The use of RESTASIS® did not lead to an increase in tear production in patients who use anti-inflammatory ophthalmic
drops or have tubes in the lacrimal canals.

What you need to know before using
These are the only eye drops that help increase the ability of the eyes to produce tears naturally. Keep in mind that the use of this drug did not lead to an increase in tear production in patients who use anti-inflammatory eye drops or have tubes in the lacrimal canals.
Restasis® is different than artificial tears.
Artificial tears can provide temporary relief, but they do not increase their own tear production - only Restasis® can do this.
How to use
Long-term use. The decision to further increase tear production is taken by the patient. Prolonged use of Restasis® only leads to an increase in the production of your own tears, therefore, consult your doctor before discontinuing the drug.
