Cequa (cyclosporine 0.09%) is a new FDA approved medication to treat dry eyes. It uses proprietary NCELL technology to pack the medication in nanomicelles for higher absorption. Cequa is used twice daily and acts by increasing the eye's ability to produce tears. Ask your eye doctor if it is right for you!
What is Latisse?
It is the first FDA-approved eye drop treatment to grow eyelashes.
How is it applied?
First, wipe off all make-up from your eye. Then, place one drop of Latisse onto the provided sterile applicator. Run the applicator along the skin of the eyelid margin, where the eyelashes meet the skin. Make sure to blot off any excess solution on your eye. Discard the applicator and use a new one for the other eye.
What if I wear contacts?
Remove contact lenses before using Latisse. You may wear them again after 15 minutes.
Are the effects permanent?
If you stop using Latisse, your eyelashes will gradually return to how it was before.
Who can prescribe it?
As of 2018, optometrists in the state of California are authorized to prescribe Latisse.
Ask about Latisse at your next eye exam! Find out more at their official website here.
