Restasis is in a separate class.
It is a drug that is part of a multi layered medical and surgical approach to treatment there are other topical drugs in the pipeline that may augment or be an alternative if Restasis cannot be tolerated. Dry eyes is an extremely complex treatment puzzle.

Restasis is a drug in its own class.
There are no substitutes. It is part of a multilayered approach to dryeyes.. Some people cannot tolerate the restasts.
