Ophthalmic cyclosporine is employed to enhance tear production in individuals experiencing dry eye disease. Classified as an immunomodulator, cyclosporine functions by reducing eye inflammation, thereby facilitating tear production.

Uses and Dosage

Ophthalmic cyclosporine is available in two forms: a solution (liquid) and an emulsion (a mixture of two unblendable liquids) for eye instillation. It is typically administered twice daily, with a 12-hour interval between each application.

To ensure consistent dosage, instill the eye drops at approximately the same times daily. Use cyclosporine eye drops precisely as directed, neither exceeding nor reducing the recommended amount or frequency.

Remember that cyclosporine eye drops are exclusively for ocular use and must not be ingested or applied to the skin.

Cyclosporine eye drops are available in single-dose vials and multi-dose bottles. When using single-dose vials, use the entire contents for one or both eyes immediately after opening.

Avoid letting the dropper tip touch your eye, face, fingers, or any surface, as this may introduce bacteria into the eye drops.

To administer the eye drops, the following steps should be followed:

  1. Thoroughly wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Do not allow the dropper tip to touch the eye or any other surface, and ensure that it is kept clean.
  3. Tilt the head back and pull down the lower lid of the eye using the index finger to form a pocket.
  4. Hold the dropper as close to the eye as possible without making contact, and brace the remaining fingers against the face.
  5. Squeeze the dropper gently to instill a single drop in the pocket created by the lower eyelid while looking upwards.
  6. Remove the index finger from the lower eyelid and keep the eye closed for 2-3 minutes while tilting the head down.
  7. Apply gentle pressure to the tear duct using a finger.
  8. Use a tissue to wipe off any excess liquid from the face.
  9. Wash hands to remove any residual medication.
