Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi,Welcome to Just Answer.
Kindly tell me since how long are you taking restasis?
Are you taking any other drug?
I am one of the ophthalmologists here, can you tell me why you want to take restasis more than twice a day ?
Hello again KJ5
restasis is a wonderful medicine however maximal effect does not kick in for several weeks. Using Restasis more than 2 times a day will not harm the eyes but also will not help the medicine kick in any faster. If you find the drop soothing as many people do, you can pick up something called Refresh Celluvisc which is a very viscous (oily) medicine that will make your eyes feel wonderful. One other thing I recommend after lid surgery is to use something called Refresh PM or another nighttime ointment since sometimes after lid surgery, the eyes are more open and can lead to dryness over night. I hope this helps, if you have any questions, please let me know, Dr. Stevens
