Is LACRISERT® right for me?

You may benefit from LACRISERT® if you have moderate to severe dry eye and:

  • Continue to have symptoms despite frequent use of artificial tears
  • Are unwilling to frequently apply artificial tears or use ointments or gels
  • Want to continue wearing contact lenses
  • Have undergone prior LASIK or cataract surgery
  • Suffer from dry eye secondary to Sjögren’s syndrome

How LACRISERT® works

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.
