Restasis Eye Irritation Causes and Reviews


Oil spills often happen because of accidents, when people make mistakes or equipment breaks down. Other causes include natural disasters or deliberate acts. Oil spills have major environmental and economic effects.

Oil spills can also affect human health. These effects can depend on what kind of oil was spilled and where (on land, in a river, or in the ocean). Other factors include what kind of exposure and how much exposure there was. People who clean up the spill are more at risk. Problems could include skin and eye irritation, neurologic and breathing problems, and stress. Not much is known about the long-term effects of oil spills.


Restasis Eye Irritation Reviews

Thu, 03 May 2012

I have been on Restasis for about six months. For the past month or so, I have been waking up with a very stuffy nose, and when I blow it, it is all blood. There is usually some clots, but mostly it is bright red and fresh. It seems to get better during the day, with just minor blood color upon blowing. (This might be because it is draining down my throat instead.) Anyone else notice this problem?

Wed, 25 Apr 2012

I've had sore throat, headache and cough for weeks. ENT says all looks fine. Been taking Restasis a number of weeks. A correlation? Will stop and see what happens!

Tue, 07 Feb 2012

I find I continually am continually clearing my throat, which in turn causes me to get short of breath and hyperventilate. I have tried Fess, and sometimes I use Yoga breathing. Also I have massaged behind my ears and down the tubes to my throat. This often works causing the phlegm to disperse and go down the back of the throat. Is there anything I can buy as I am worried that I have congestion ?

Tue, 26 Jan 2010

Headache--24/7--atarted within a month of taking Restasis--anybody else with that problem?

Mon, 25 Jan 2010

I have been on Restasis for approximately 5 months and have not yet stabalized my dry eye condition and I am experiencing a large fluxuation in my vision. I have also been hospitalized with chest pain since I have been on Restasis. Is anyone out there had any of these problems while on Restasis.

Wed, 25 Aug 2010

"Guest" , I also have been on Restasis for a while (1 1/2- 2 yrs.) and I also have noticed EXACTLY the same symptoms (i.e. lots of blinking, feeling of pressure to blink etc.)I also have noticed that my eyelids feel like they are "dried out", as well. I have told all of this to my Dr. and she felt that I have "Blepharitus",which is inflammation of the eyelid.I followed the treatment and STILL have the eye dryness!. It is a very bothersome condition to say the least.

I have also been having excessive blinking and feeling of squinting and tension in my eyeseven when I would close my eyes at night.My eyes had sort of a plastic feeling at times. I thought maybethese symptoms were related to the Lasik surgery, but when I skipped a couple doses of my Restasis this week because of a migraine, I noticed these symptomsseem to havedecreased. So now after reading these posts about similar symptoms, I think I will quit usingRestasis for awhile (wasn't helping much with dryness anyway). I had usedit for about 3+ months since my Lasik surgery. I never had the burning, stinging, redness or other commonly reported side effects ofRestasis, but do think maybe this (excessive blinking/squinting) is a real side effect.

Mon, 17 Jan 2011

My eyes burn all day long. Plus I seem to produce excess tearing so it looks like I've been crying. I havent monitored my blood pressure but after reading some of the posts here I think I'll start today.

Fri, 22 Oct 2010

I have been using Restasis for about a year and I have noticed that my eyelashes are actually breaking off and not growing back. Is this a side effect?

Mon, 11 Oct 2010

What are you doing now for your eyes?
