Don’t let up when fighting chronic dry eye
To fight inflammation you need to keep taking your medicine twice a day, every day.
While over-the-counter drops temporarily wet your eyes, they don’t treat the underlying cause of dry eye—inflammation. Only a prescription medication can do that. With CEQUA, it’s possible for your chronic dry eye to start improving in as little as 1 month, and your eyes may start producing more tears in just 3 months. While this is a good sign, you shouldn’t stop taking CEQUA—it needs to be taken every day for the best results.
