Xiidra: The Newest Treatment for Dry Eye.

September 4, 2016

 The newest medication in dry eye treatment was released recently by the company SHIRE. We had the representative in our office this week to discuss and here is the lowdown:


1.) XIIDRA is similar to longtime dry eye drop Restasis: both reduce inflammation


2.) Inflammation is one of the major causes of chronic dry eye


3.) How does it work? In a nutshell, it prevents inflammatory cells from attaching to your cornea by blocking the receptors that aide in this attachment.


4.) Research: 4 studies were done on those with mild and severe dry eye. The studies show that patients felt better relief with XIIDRA as compared to a placebo


5.) Side effects? Burning upon instillation and a weird taste in your mouth 

(I can attest to both as I tested the drop myself. Fortunately they went away the longer I used the drop).


For chronic dry eye sufferers, this drop may be very helpful. We will have to monitor the results in the upcoming months!
