Lacrisert Opht Insert Details (Brand and Generic)

CanadaPharmacyOnline offers Lacrisert Opht Insert and other eye care medications at huge savings. We currently have the brand Lacrisert Opht Insert from Canada manufactured by Bausch Health. The generic version is not available.


Lacrisert Opht Insert is available in the strength of 5 mg/60 pellet.


Lacrisert (hydroxypropyl cellulose ocular system, USP) ophthalmic insert is a sterile, rod-shaped, ophthalmic preparation for administration inside your lower eyelid. It is about 1.27 mm in diameter by about 3.5 mm long. Each Lacrisert is made of 5 mg of hydroxypropyl cellulose. Lacrisert is an insert that is designed to be placed in your eye to treat dry eyes. Lacrisert contains no preservatives or other ingredients. Lacrisert is available as 5 mg ophthalmic inserts. It is supplied in packages of 60 units, together with illustrated instructions and a special applicator for removing Lacrisert from the unit dose blister and inserting it into the eye. A spare applicator is included in each package. Lacrisert thickens the tear film in the eye, thus lubricating and protecting the eye. Lacrisert works by thickening the tear film in the eye, thus lubricating and protecting the eye against dry eyes. Lacrisert is recommended when you have dry eyes, resulting from too little tear production. This condition may cause your eye to become irritated. If left untreated, your condition could worsen your eyesight.

To apply the eye drops:
• Tilt the head back slightly and pull down on the lower eyelid. Position the dropper above the eye. Look up and away from the dropper. Squeeze out a drop and close the eye. Apply gentle pressure to the inside corner of the eye (near the nose) for about 1 minute to prevent the liquid from draining down the tear duct. Apply additional drops in the same way if directed. Repeat the process in the other eye if directed.
• Replace the cap on the bottle after use.
Do not touch the dropper to any surface, including the eyes or hands. The dropper is sterile. If it becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection in the eye. Do not use any eye drop that is discolored or has particles in it. If improperly placed in the inferior cul-de-sac, Lacrisert may result in corneal abrasion.

Side Effects and Precautions

The common Lacrisert Opht Insert side effects may include temporary blurring of vision; eye discomfort or irritation; matting or stickiness of eyelashes; unusual visual sensitivity to light; redness and swelling of the eyelids; redness of the eye; allergic reactions and tearing. Call your doctor right away if you have any of the serious side effects such as:
• Changes in vision;
• Continued redness, or irritation of the eye, or if the condition worsens or persists;
• Eye pain, double vision

Warnings and Interactions

Do not use Lacrisert if you are allergic to hydroxypropyl cellulose. Tell your physician about any medical problems you have or have had, and about any allergies. In case of discomfort, make certain that Lacrisert is properly placed deep inside the lower eyelid. If discomfort persists or if there is a worsening of symptoms, remove the ophthalmic insert and contact your physician. You should tell your physician about all drugs that you are using or plan to use, including those obtained without a prescription. You should tell your physician if you are pregnant or intend to become pregnant or if you are breast-feeding. Your physician will decide if you should use Lacrisert. Consult your doctor before using it in children. Saline drops may be used with Lacrisert in cases with severe dry eyes. Lacrisert may be used in patients wearing contact lenses as long as Lacrisert has dissolved prior to insertion of the contact lenses. Lacrisert should not be inserted while the contact lenses are in the eyes. Rather, the contact lenses should be removed, then Lacrisert placed in the cul-de-sac and allowed to dissolve prior to re-insertion of the contact lenses. Similarly, if you are using other eye drops, you should wait at least 5 minutes before admministering other eye drop products. This product may cause temporary blurring of vision. Be cautious when driving or when operating hazardous machinery.
