    Lacrisert has made my life so much better. With them, I can get about 8 to 10 hours a day symptom free. After that, they begin to lose effect. I have Sjogrens. I have punctal plugs and was using drops all day long. Now I only use drops occasionally. Huge improvement!

    I have been using the Lacrisert for about 4 weeks and have been pleased with the results. The only side effect that I seem to have is that my nose runs constantly. Has anyone else had this problem, and if so have you found a solution? At this point the relief from the dry eye far outweight the runny nose.

    I had used Lacriserts in my eyes for Sjogrens Syndrome since the late 80's. Then they quite making them. My eyes have gone through a trama time while using other products plus having my tear ducts plugged. I just learned that there is now a generic out and I am excited. I will be using them again. They will save my sight.

    I have been using Lacriserts a few months for treatment of dry eye caused by Sjogren's Syndrome. It takes about 6 hours before they become effective, but my eyes feel much better all afternoon. I can actually go several hours without drops.

    I have sjorgens and I don't know what I would do without lacriserts. They are the only things that work. I am able to live a normal life with them. I have had my ducts plugged and even my own blood drawn to make a serum to put back in my eyes. Nothing works except lacriserts. I am so thankful for them.

    This is the only thing that gives me any relief from my dry eyes associated with Sjogren's Syndrome. Much more effective than Restasis. I put them in every morning and don't think about them or notice them all day. If I forget them, my eyes are burning by lunchtime so much that I can't read or drive. It takes a little practice to get used to putting them in, but probably no more than contact lenses. The worst problem I have with them is having them fall off the applicator before I get them in my eyes.

    I have used this for 20 years to treat my dry eyes caused by Sjogren's Syndrome. It makes the quality of daily life much better.

    Lacriserts have given me back my life. Before I used them, I was in too much pain to read or use a computer. I wore dark goggle almost all day. I still wear dark glasses at time now, but I am so much better with Lacriserts.

    Extremely uncomfortable to place in, and keep in the lower eyelids. Easily comes out, if you sneeze, or gently rub eye. Produces very sticky tears, and when removed, the eye is excessively dry. A very bad experience with them. I used them for about 3 months hoping for some relief of my chronic condition.
