WHAT IS CYCLOSPORINE EYE DROPS AND WHY IS IT BEING PRESCRIBED?

Cyclosporine works by decreasing swelling in the eye to allow for tear production. Restasis ophthalmic emulsion is a prescription eye drop that helps patients increase their eyes’ natural ability to produce tears. It is used to treat a type of chronic dry eye condition caused by inflammation.  

Cyclosporine, the medicine in Restasis, is also available in oral and injectable formulations that are used to treat various conditions including treatment or prevention of rejection of transplanted organs, psoriasis, and rheumatoid arthritis. Following oral administration or injection, cyclosporine is absorbed in the bloodstream and works systemically to suppress the body’s immune system. However, cyclosporine eye drop emulsion is thought to work differently. Restasis is believed to work locally in the eye as a partial modulator of the immune system. Tear production is thought to be decreased when lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell of the immune system, die and accumulate in the tear glands. Restasis reverses this condition, increasing tear production. Restasis does not produce its effect immediately. An increase in tear production may not be noticed until 3 to 6 months after starting treatment.

HOW TO USE CYCLOSPORINE EYE DROPS

Use Cyclosporine Eye drops as directed from your Primary Physician. Use this medication approx. 12 hours. Remove contact lenses first. Wash your hands before using eye medication. How to Apply the drops — Tilt your head back and squeeze bottle to ensure liquid flows directly to your eyes. Close your eyes for 30-60 seconds. Turn the Restasis bottle upside down a few times to gently mix the medicine before each use. Use only the number of drops your doctor has prescribed. Wait at least 15 minutes before inserting contact lenses or using artificial tears. Do not touch the tip of the eye dropper or place it directly on your eye. A contaminated dropper can infect your eye, which could lead to serious vision problems. Cequa eye drops should be clear and colorless. Restasis eye drops should appear white in color. Each single-use bottle is for one use only (in both eyes). Throw the bottle away after one use, even if there is still medicine left inside.
