Unidirectional valve and air filter technology eliminates need for preservative

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Restasis MultiDose (cyclosporine ophthalmic emulsion 0.05%), a multi-dose, preservative-free preparation of Restasis.  The patented unidirectional valve and air filter technology eliminates the need for a preservative.

Restasis, a calcineurin inhibitor immunosuppressant, is indicated to increase tear production in patients whose tear production is presumed to be suppressed due to ocular inflammation associated with keratoconjunctivitis sicca.
