Optimmune (Cyclosporin)

Drug:Cyclosporin 5gm Ointment
Dosage:0.2 %


Optimmune (Cyclosporine) is a prescription pet eye lubricant that is used in cats and dogs to manage chronic keratoconjunctivitis sicca (dry eye). Cyclosporine belongs to a class of drugs known as immunosuppressants. This medication works by treating the autoimmune disease that causes dry eye and the symptoms by simulating the tear glands to resume normal tear production. It halts the immune destruction of these glands and reduces inflammation of the eyes in cats and dogs.
