    New medication for dry eye

    From a newsletter from our ophthalmologist:

    "Recent FDA approval of the eye drop Restasis has given ophthalmologists a new effective tool for treating the dry eye condition.......Restasis is a unique medication for dry eye in that it treats the underlying problem contributing to the dry eye condition."

    Side effects reported by some patients are stinging and burning of the eye. None of the medication has been found to be absorbed into the bloodstream.

    It can cost $50 to $100 per month.

    This may be old news to some, but I did want to share.
