Dryness and irritation associated with deficient tear production in mild to severe cases of dry eye may be treated with Artificial Tears.

The tip of the container of Artificial Tears should not touch any other surface so that the eye does not get contaminated. If the Artificial Tears solution changes colors or becomes cloudy, discontinue use immediately. If your pet’s eye pain gets worse, stop using Artificial Tears and call your veterinarian.

From our Veterinarians
Veterinarians frequently use eye drops, Artificial Tears, when a pet has inappropriate tear production. The condition known as KCS, (or dry eyes), is frequently treated with Artificial Tears, Cyclosporine, and antibiotic ointments or solutions. If you have a breed that is predisposed to dry eyes, you know how important Artificial Tears are in helping manage the condition. A lot of us use Artificial Tears for our own eyes, (myself included), and know how great it makes our eyes feel. In my experience, consistent application of Artificial Tears not only makes your pet feel more comfortable, but will also help delay corneal changes associated with lack of tear production. Remember you can apply Artificial Tears to your pet’s eyes as frequently as you would like without any danger.
