How Eysuvis can help

Eysuvis is an effective eye drop that treats the signs and symptoms of Dry Eye and Dry Eye Flares.

    and Dry Eye symptoms (like ocular discomfort or dryness)

  • It’s an eye drop that targets inflammation,
    a key cause of Dry Eye.

    Inflammation is one of the key problems in Dry Eye. You may have tried over-the-counter eye drops, or artificial tears. They may give you relief, but it may be relief that doesn’t last. That’s because artificial tears don’t contain medicine and don't target inflammation

    You may expect that you need to wait for Dry Eye relief. But you don’t. You can use Eysuvis when you start feeling symptoms
    and keep using it (as your eye care professional directs) for up to 2 weeks each time you experience Dry Eye Flares
