Optimmune

Many dogs suffer from “dry eye,” or keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS), an uncomfortable, persistent condition often caused by an immune system disorder. To treat the condition and relive your dog’s discomfort, your veterinarian may prescribe Optimmune, a sterile eye ointment that contains the medication cyclosporine.

  • Eases swelling, dryness, and pain caused by dry eye in dogs
  • Increases tear production
  • Easy to apply, soothing ointment

 

Dogs can suffer from a range of eye conditions that cause dryness, discharge, and discomfort. Prescription Optimmune eye ointment effectively treats two of the most common eye conditions -- keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS) and chronic superficial keratitis (CSK). This ointment contains Cyclosporine, an FDA-approved anti-inflammatory immunosuppressive drug that reduces swelling and irritation. Optimmune also helps increase tear production. Applied as directed, this medication will help your dog feel better and see brighter days ahead.

  • Talk to your veterinarian before using this product.
  • Follow dosing directions exactly - don’t give your pet more medication than directed and don’t skip doses.
  • Read the label carefully for information about storage, possible side effects, and drug interactions.

      Kristi,

      We do carry Optimmune, a 0.2% cyclosporine eye ointment, but no generic product is available. There are alternative treatments available for keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS) but any decision to change treatment choice would have to be made by your veterinarian.

      Thank you,

This ointment works great with dry eyes. It helps to stimulate natural tears and
using it one to twice a day you can see the difference.

Definitely helps with our dog's dry eye issue

By 

from Trabuco Canyon, CA

Comments about Merck Animal Health Optimmune (cyclosporine) Ophthalmic Ointment:

Our vet recommended this product for our Lhasa Apso to help with his severe dry eye condition. At 13 years of age our little guy is showing definite signs of age, and his eyes were required daily cleaning to remove the crusted discharge. A simple application twice a day has greatly diminished that discharge and I find I can now just wipe his eyes once a day at the most instead of having to completely wash them twice daily. It's great to see his big, round, brown eyes open all the time again!

Comments about Merck Animal Health Optimmune (cyclosporine) Ophthalmic Ointment:

I was very happy to find that this was at least $5 cheaper than what my vet charges me. I had free shipping, and I was able to do this from the comfort of my home on my laptop. They did the work for me, they contacted my dogs vet, and got the perscription verified. The whole process took less than a week!!!!! This was a great experience for me!!!!! Bailey's eyes are much happier now!
