RESTASIS®/Xiidra: Relief for Chronic Dry Eye

View Video

When your eyes are unable to produce sufficient tears, you have a condition called Aqueous Dry Eye. This can become a chronic condition which causes great discomfort due to lack of lubrication and protection, making daily activities difficult.

At Tidewater Eye Centers we offer RESTASIS®/Xiidra Ophthalmic Emulsion to treat the ongoing symptoms of Chronic Dry Eye. These twice-daily prescription eye drops help increase your eye’s natural ability to produce tears. It may take up to 6 months for the product to take full effect; however, relief can begin after one month. 

RESTASIS/Xiidra drops are different from artificial tears that can be purchased over-the-counter. Those types of products simply provide temporary relief. RESTASIS is a longer-lasting, more effective solution.

Not everyone with dry eye is a good candidate for RESTASIS/Xiidra. Our dry eye doctors in Virginia Beach, Portsmouth and Chesapeake, VA, will assess your unique eyes to determine the root cause of your condition so proper treatment can be recommended. Contact us today to schedule an eye exam.
