  • Ikervis help

    Hi, I've been on Ikervis for 3 months and I did feel some minor improvements. Not a lot but my eyes were better and I was do I g well at work. However, in the last 3 weeks my dry eyes have got worse and it feels like the Ikervis has stopped working. Is this normal with Ikervis? I am using it 3 times a day. What are your experiences with Ikervis?

    There is variance w the disease, give it some more time. The meds are supposed to help you long term.

      Ikervis is supposed to be used only ONCE a day, preferably before bed, and the maximum benefit you will start seeing after 6 months, you have to continue and be consistant, its not a cure but ive improved much, and will allow you to create more tears naturally.
      If u have discomfort is because its crazy to use it 3 times a day, its cyclosporine, its a medicine not a lubricant drop!! in the daytime you have to use other carbomer gel or hylo gel.

        I haven’t used Ikervis, but I have used Restais for 8 months. When I first started to use Restais, my ophthalmologist also prescribed a very thick pomade, called ‘Terra-Cortril’, to apply to the interior of my eyelids just before going to sleep at night. I applied the Restasis drops about 15 minutes before using the pomade. I can’t see why you shouldn’t be able to do the same with Castor oil drops if they help you, particularly since it can take quite a long time before Restais/kervis produces any noticeable effect.

        In the past when I had such doubts, I sent an email directly to the manufacturer to ask them, and usually I got a prompt answer to my queries. So if you are particularly worried about using Castor oil with Ikervis, that’s what I would recommend. If you do write to the manufacturer, it would be interesting to hear what they have to say.,

          No, you can use it up to 4x a day. I was told to use ikervis 3x a day by local hospital doc. the London moorfields doc said up to 4x a day.
