What is Restasis?
Restasis (cyclosporine) is probably best known by the public as a treatment for dry eye syndrome, administered in the form of eye drops. However, people who have received a bone marrow or organ transplant will tell you that cyclosporine is part of their anti-rejection routine because of its effectiveness in preventing post-transplant graft-versus-host disease. The focus here, though, is on Restasis eye drops.
Dry eye syndrome is a general term that applies when tear production is insufficient to lubricate the eyes adequately and protect the surface of the eyes from damage or infection. Dry eye is commonly experienced by people with an autoimmune system disorder called Sjogren’s syndrome.
Severe, untreated dry eye syndrome can result in abrasions or ulcers of the cornea and a variety of vision problems. It can make reading uncomfortable and interfere with daily activities that require visual acuity.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Simplefill is well aware of the difficulties people are having paying for costly prescriptions that are needed for a prolonged period of time, or even indefinitely. We don’t think anyone should have to sacrifice other necessities in order to pay for a prescription that, in many cases, rivals their monthly rent payment or family food budget.
That’s why Simplefill is dedicated to being the bridge between people who need prescription assistance and those who can provide it.
How does Restasis Work?
Restasis is an immunosuppressant medication administered in the form of eye drops, typically twice daily. The white blood cells caused lymphocytes, specifically the T-lymphocytes, or T-cells, that are the foot soldiers of the body’s immune system.
When an immune response is triggered, the T-cells produce cytokines, causing inflammation, which is implicated in the onset of dry eye syndrome. Through a complex chain of interactions at the cellular level, Restasis decreases the T-cell activity that leads to inflammation.
