This past week there was major news in the medical eye care field as a new treatment for dry eye was announced. The new medication is called Xiidra, and will be the first new prescription medication for dry eye in over a decade. Currently there is only one other prescription medication available for dry eye. Those of you who have dry eye are probably familiar with Restasis, which has been available for about 10 years. The makers of Xiidra state the new medication will be available within the next 3 months. If you suffer from dry eye or know somebody who suffers from dry eye and are interested in this new medication option, please contact us or stop by the office.
