LACRISERT® softens as it dissolves slowly over the course of one day to stabilize and thicken the tear film of the eye. This allows your natural tears to be better maintained throughout the day. As your tear film thickens, it can protect the surface of your eyes longer, and you should begin to feel relief from your dry eye symptoms.
Instructions for Use:
To apply this medication, wash your hands first. To avoid contamination, do not touch the insert or let it touch any other surface besides the applicator.
If you wear contact lenses, remove them before using this medication. Ask your doctor when you may replace your contact lenses.
Use the supplied applicator to place 1 insert into the eye, usually 1 to 2 times daily or as directed by your doctor.
Rinse the applicator with hot running water after use. Shake off any visible water droplets, and then replace the applicator in the storage container.
Avoid rubbing your eyes when using this medication. If the insert comes out, you may replace it with another one.
