Q. Joshua was put on Neo/Poly/Bac Optic Ointment & Optimune Cyclosporine 1% for dry eye and eye ulcers. It's been 9 mo. since I can't afford it?
A. I would recheck with a vet to see what the tear production is like and also add in Genteal ointment or drops to help with the dry eye. If it's only dry eye you should be able to discontinue the neo poly bac, but the cyclosporine will also help so keep that up. Only way to know if it's helping is to get a schirmer tear test done and see the values. Also I would recommend seeing an eye doctor for him to determine if there is more going on than just the dry eye, which is more than likely causing the ulcers.
