Optimmune Ophthalmic Ointment 3.5g tube



Optimmune Ophthalmic Ointment is prescribed for the treatment of Keratoconjunctivitis (dry eye) in dogs.



Optimmune Dosage and Administration:



Remove debris with suitable nonirritating solutions. Apply a ¼ inch strip of ointment to the affected eye's every 12 hours. The ointment may be placed directly on the cornea or into the conjunctival sac.



It is recommended that dogs exhibiting chronic recurring conjunctivitis be tested for adequate tear production to determine if they are suffering from early stages of chronic KCS.



For best results in treating KCS, cyclosporine ophthalmic ointment should be administered early in the course of the disease before irreversible damage to the lacrimal tissue, or dense corneal scarring or pigmentation occurs.



Dogs afflicted with KCS or CSK will most likely require lifelong consistent therapy.

For CSK, because environmental factors such as ultraviolet (UV) radiation are implicated in the pathogenesis, clinical signs may subside in the winter months when light intensity is reduced or if the dog is moved to a lower altitude, or indoors, and thus exposed to less UV radiation.



In cases refractory to cyclosporine, the diagnosis should be re-evaluated and a different course of therapy considered.



Periodic reassessment of the need for OPTIMMUNE® Ophthalmic Ointment therapy is recommended
