Optimmune is an eye ointment that contains cyclosporine. It is used for the management of chronic keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS or dry eye) and chronic superficial keratitis (CSK). This preservative-free ointment reduces the chances of chemical irritation and secondary infection, and can be stored for 24 months without refrigeration.
Proudly sourced directly from the manufacturer or their approved distributor. Guaranteed genuine and backed by the manufacturer.
My order from Chewy was for prescription eye drops for my dog. The delivery was fine, as was the product, but the packaging was ridiculous. A tiny tube of eye drops was in a box, which was put in a large plastic pill bottle, which was put into a large cardboard box, with packing material. From now on I will get them from my vet, because I hate creating all of this extra packaging for a tiny tube of eye drops. The drops could have been sent in a padded envelope. I love Chewy, but they need to be more environmentally friendly.
This medication is very expensive and the price keeps going up. Chewy’s price started reasonably however it’s getting close to what the vet is charging. We’re looking for another online source for pet meds now.
but good. Been using this ointment for a few years. Easy to administer as he had bleeding in left eye - but also using in both eyes, Condition is stable. PET is 16- and vision has diminished but this is for his lifetime and no adverse reaction to it.
My dog, Lilly, has an eye condition that requires the above medication. I appreciate how quickly I received my order after placing it. Thank you, Chewy, for making it easy to order from your service.
My order was for a special ointment for my dog's autoimune eye infection.and delivered promptly. Recommend as needed. It is expensive but necessary to treat Pannus.
My dog has keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS, dry eye) so he needs this RX medicine twice a day. He is also on Refresh Tears which I have to give 20min apart from one another. The Optimmune makes my dogs eyes blink/squint more after giving him the medicine. He sometimes paws at his eyes and licks his legs. My vet said Optimmune can cause some eyelid spasming and some local irritation, but I think most dogs get used to this. He said to keep using Optimmune since we know it helps to reduce the risk of corneal inflammation and secondary infection in the dogs with KCS.
Savannah has been on Optimmune for 20 months due to an eye injury. It appears she will have to continue indefinitely. This is the second tube I received from Chewy. I am saving $24 each tube. I wish I started 19 months ago. She is also on another medication that is cheaper with Chewy.
Prescribed by my vet early 2023 the daily ointment has been very effective for my dog. It is a prescription medication. Chewy Pharmacy is always very quick at getting medications to me
This stuff is great. It gives my dog great relief from her dry eyes BUT it is very expensive for the amount of product that you get. I use, approved by my vet, OTC eye drops that I alternate back and forth.
The first tube of med was full. This one I had to flatten half of the tube before any meds came out.
