Restasis® (cyclosporine ophthalmic emulsion) is a medication often prescribed for increasing tear production in people with chronic dry eyes. It works by decreasing eye inflammation that can interfere with the eyes' ability to produce tears. Although most people tolerate it well, potential side effects include eye redness, burning, and stinging. This medicine comes as an eye drop and is used in each eye twice a day, with 12 hours between doses.
