PATIENT INFORMATION

Use with Contact Lenses

RESTASIS® should not be administered while wearing contact lenses. Patients with decreased tear production typically should not wear contact lenses.

Lenses may be reinserted 15 minutes following administration of RESTASIS® ophthalmic emulsion [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
