Optimmune (cyclosporine) is indicated for the management of chronic keratoconjuntivitis sicca (KCS or dry eye) and chronic superficial keratitis (CSK) in dogs. In dogs, cylcopsporine has been shown to increase tear production, possibly by stimulating the tear gland. Cyclosporine, when applied to the eyes, can reduce scar tissue and pigment that has developed due to disease.
Side effects of cyclosporine may include inflammatory reactions, lid spasm, and excessive rubbing. If ocular irritation persists more than 7 days, consult your veterinarian.
Cyclosporine should not be used in animals with known hypersensitivity or allergy to the drug. Cyclosporine should be used with caution if a corneal ulcer is present.
Cyclosporine is for use in dogs only. The usual dose is to apply a inch strip of ointment to the affected eye(s) every 12 hours. The ointment may be placed directly on the cornea or into the conjunctival sac. Use suitable non-irritating solutions to remove debris from the eye(s) prior to the application of the ointment.
