Optimmune eye ointment is a medication containing cyclosporine and is used to treat recurring eye problems such as conjunctivitis resulting from an autoimmune disease in the dog's eyes. This can also include Dry Eye (keratoconjunctivitis) and Pannus (chronic superficial keratitis).
Most cases of Dry Eye will respond with increased tear production after about ten days but can take six weeks for a full recovery. Pannus may not need treatment all year round as it is often triggered by UV light.
Optimmune is typically used in conjunction with antibiotic or steroid drops. It is important to follow veterinary advice and maintain treatment as instructed to prevent the progression of underlying diseases.
