An Alternative Treatment

Decreased tear meniscus in dry eye.
As an alternative to steroids—or as an adjunctive therapy—topical cyclosporine can also be used to control inflammation in dry eye disease. While cyclosporine does not demonstrate the rapid anti-inflammatory effect of steroids, it carries fewer risks and is safe for long-term use.
Because of their complementary efficacy and safety profiles, many practitioners often begin dry eye treatment by prescribing both topical steroids and cyclosporine. Following the recommendation of the Asclepius Panel, the use of combination therapy is instituted with the topical corticosteroid, Lotemax (loteprednol etabonate ophthalmic suspension %, Bausch + Lomb) and Restasis (cyclosporine ophthalmic emulsion %, Allergan). 24 The Asclepius Panel recommends practitioners begin early treatment with an anti-inflammatory agent (such as Lotemax) four times a day to improve symptoms and to prevent disease progression. After two weeks, the frequency of the corticosteroid is reduced to twice daily and supplemented with Restasis twice a day. Treatment with loteprednol was stopped after day 60, while cyclosporine treatment is continued.

Transdermal patches can be a very precise time released method of delivering a drug. Cutting a patch in half might affect the dose delivered. The release of the active component from a transdermal delivery system (patch) may be controlled by diffusion through the adhesive which covers the whole patch, by diffusion through a membrane which may only have adhesive on the patch rim or drug release may be controlled by release from a polymer matrix. Cutting a patch might cause rapid dehydration of the base of the medicine and affect the rate of diffusion.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐"Let me first say that I have extremely dry eyes. Working on the computer and reading for work had gotten to be difficult due to blurry vision, aching eyes, and pain. For years, I have had dry eye problems. I have tried the drops and I've also tried Restasis, and that just didn't work that well. My job relies on my ability to work on the computer all day, and I found that I was getting discouraged, sure that my dryness would never improve. I was also tired waking up several times at night in pain due to dry eyes. After lots of research online, I decided to try an Omega 3 Fish Oil supplement. I ordered this fish oil and have been using it for just over 1 month. They say it takes 3-6 months to notice an effect, but I have been blown away already. I've been able to cut down my use of artificial tears and rely mostly on Eye Love's Dry Eye Omega 3 Supplement to treat my burning eyes. I take 3 softgels per day in the morning and never notice any fish burps later on...always a good thing! The pills are black, but don't let that scare you. Try these out...you won't be disappointed!"

Lotemax is used in dry eye syndrome to decrease and eliminate inflammation of the ocular surface caused by the hyperosmolarity of the tears.  The inflammation must first be brought under control before any other treatments can be optimally effective.  Lotemax would typically be prescribed for two weeks to three months initially and then may need to be used again on a 1-2 week regimen periodically if the inflammation occurs again.  Lotemax ointment has become a choice of many doctors to treat inflammation caused by dry eye (ocular surface disease) because it can be used at night with a long contact period to the eye's surfaces and provide some functional lubrication while the eyes are closed.
