Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am U.S. trained,

Board Certified and I have 32 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you.

I'm sorry you have been diagnosed with dry eye syndrome. You are currently taking Xiidra as treatment.

One of the expected side effects of these drops is burning/stinging when first applied. This should go away in a few seconds. All of the prescription drops for the treatment of dry eyes have this same side effect. As long as this sensation goes away in seconds after applying, that is normal. If the stinging remains, please discuss changing this medication with your Doctor.

I hope I have helped with your question. If not please ask more.

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, so I am compensated for my service, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
