Xiidra ThumbnailWhat is Xiidra?

Xiidra is a prescription eye drop used to treat the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease. Xiidra targets a source of inflammation that may cause dry eye disease. Dry eye disease can be caused by inflammation on the surface of the eye. Xiidra is specifically designed to target a source of that inflammation.

Why Xiidra for dry eye disease?

The only FDA-approved dry eye medication specifically for both the signs and symptoms of dry eye.

The Relief Your Dry Eyes May Need

Xiidra has been studied in more than 1,000 patients with dry eye in four separate, 12-week clinical studies. Xiidra was proven to reduce symptoms of eye dryness in all four studies and Inferior fluorescein Corneal Staining Score in three of the four studies in some patients at week 12.

Xiidra may not work for everyone. Ask your doctor if Xiidra is right for you.

Important Safety Information

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.
