There are a bunch of different
eye specialists out there...which
is lucky for dry eyes everywhere. But things can get confusing when you’re not sure what each one does. We’re here to help.
Optometrists are eye doctors (ODs) who attended optometry school and are trained to examine and treat eyes for both vision and health problems. They may prescribe eyeglasses, contact lenses, medications and perform certain procedures to treat problems and diseases of the eyes.
Ophthalmologists are eye doctors (MDs or DOs) who attended medical school and are trained to specialize in medical and surgical care of the eyes. They also may prescribe eyeglasses, contact lenses and medications.
Xiidra is a prescription eye drop used to treat the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease.
Do not use Xiidra if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. Seek medical care immediately if you get any symptoms of an allergic reaction.
The most common side effects of Xiidra include eye irritation, discomfort or blurred vision when the drops are applied to the eyes, and an unusual taste sensation.
To help avoid eye injury or contamination of the solution, do not touch the container tip to your eye or any surface. If you wear contact lenses, remove them before using Xiidra and wait for at least 15 minutes before placing them back in your eyes.
It is not known if Xiidra is safe and effective in children under 17 years of age.
