OCULAR SURFACE DISEASE
Keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS) is a scientific term for “dry eye”. Tears are vitally important in helping to keep the cornea, the clear outer covering of the eye that lets in light, healthy.
KCS occurs when tears cease to be produced in sufficient amounts or the quality of the tear film diminishes due to evaporation. This results in the loss of the function of tears. With KCS, the cornea is deprived of oxygen & nutrients and becomes irritated. Infection can then set in, which can lead to corneal damage and possibly blindness.
Many cases of keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS) continue to go undiagnosed or untreated. Proper diagnosis and management can only be provided by specialized professionals, with the assistance of effective diagnostic tools and reliable treatment options. I-MED Animal Health is focused on providing veterinary professionals with the most innovative and effective products at an affordable price.

Great for dogs with Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca (KCS) that don't produce "quality" tears Reviewed in the United States on January 19, 2021 Most dogs with KCS don't produce enough tears for proper eye lubrication, so it's a "quantity" issue. Unfortunately, my dog has KCS with a tear "quality" issue, which is a bit more difficult to treat. We were using the prescribed Tacroliums drops from the dog ophthalmologist which increases tear production but all they were doing was giving him watery eyes which were still red, itchy, and dry. I think I've tried every moisturizing eye drop you can get at a pharmacy and this is the only eye drop that gives him any relief. During the summer months when there's a bit more humidity in the air I give the drops 1-2 times per day and in the winter when it's really dry it can be 5-6 times per day. He's pretty good about letting me know when he needs more drops. They may be a bit on the pricey side for eye drops, but do you know how expensive it is to see the dog ophthalmologist? It's $250 to walk in the door, not to mention all the money that's already been spent on constant eye infections from KCS. Since we started using these drops we haven't had any issues with eye infections. These drops are absolutely worth it to me and my pup. I don't know what we're going to do if they ever stop making them.
Miracle eyedrops! Reviewed in the United States on January 17, 2017 I rescued my Shih Tzu, Molly, from a shelter 10 years ago. She was approximately seven years old at the time and had been found on the streets. She was in very bad shape and had terrible eye problems. She saw various veterinarians for her health problems, including severe dry eyes that were always filled with mucus and gunk. Every vet prescribed Optimmune appointment which I put in her eyes for the last 10 years. Her eyes never improved and in the past year she has gone totally blind. I continued with the Optimmune even though I never saw an improvement but I felt it kept her eyes from getting infected (and the vets all prescribed it so she must need it, right?). I ran across i drops on Amazon.com when I was looking for something to use in between the Optimmune since I was already going through two tubes a month. Recently I ran out of the Optimmune and used the idrops alone for three weeks. I began to notice that she no longer had the gunky discharge caked on her eyes every morning like she had for the past 10 years. For the past month I have used only the idrops and I just can't believe the difference! She no longer has the constant discharge from her eyes and Molly is in heaven that she doesn't have to go through the horrible eye cleaning three times a day! I am so impressed with the stuff that I'm going to write all four of her veterinarians and tell them about these drops. I am more convinced than ever that her prescription medication was only aggravating her problem and I'm just sorry I didn't find these drops years ago. If I discover them sooner maybe you would've prevented her total blindness. I would urge any pet parent (especially of Shih Tzus and Pekingese) to give these drops a try. It truly is like a miracle.
Wow! Reviewed in the United States on November 20, 2018 These drops are incredible! My 14 year old american pit bull terrier has been having issues with eyes being goopy yet dry, developing infections. She does have a skin tag on her lower eyelid of one eye that does cause irritation as well, but her goopy, dry, infection issues are in both eyes. I'm a Veterinary Technician and have tried every type of eye ointment and drop, both prescription and OTC. Nothing has made her eyes as clear, taken away inflammation (how?!), stopped the goop and infections (again, how?!), and kept her eyes moistened, like these drops. I'm not saying this will take the place of an antibiotic eye med as I had been using them at the same time as these drops during infections, but when I'm consistent with these drops, she doesn't need any more antibiotic/steroidal eye ointments! She's more comfortable than when I used ointments and you'd think the ointment would do a better job of creating a barrier between her eye and the skin tag, but evidently not. These drops really are miracle drops. I put 2-3 drops in each eye, twice daily, that's it.
I-DROP VET GEL made a big difference for my French Bulldogs. I will be recommending this for all my patients suffering from KCS.
I called the company and had someone explain exactly the process to reduce tear stains on my Bichon frisee! Since it does not have harsh chemicals (alcohol or bleach) it won't get rid of the pre-existing stain. I was told to shave off the stain that was there and start fresh and use it consistently. I was amazed that the stain didn't grow back and my dog looks fresh and clean! I am so happy to use a product that is gentle and works!
Best Product I've tried for my Shih Tzu's Dry Eyes Reviewed in the United States on March 27, 2021 I have tried several products for my little Shih Tzu's dry eyes and have not seen much improvement. The first time I tried this product, I could tell it was different. I wish I posted a before and after photo because LuLu's eyes are much clearer looking. Fantastic product that I will definitely purchase again!
Amazing product! Reviewed in the United States on October 12, 2018 I have been using the Lid 'n Lash gel on my dog's eyes for years. I love that product so much that I thought I'd give these pads a try as well. This product is truly amazing. My dog is a senior with dry eye so her eyes need to be cleaned daily or more. These pads are so convenient and make the cleanings quick and simple. The pads are super sticky with gel so they have an unusual feel in your hand and you need to get a good grip before you start the cleaning. I am amazed that it only takes a few wipes to clean the eyes. I cannot comment on how this product would work for tear stains because that is not the issue I have with my dog. I highly recommend this brand!
It does work Reviewed in the United States on April 8, 2021 Originally my Vet told me about Lid N Lash but I purchased a product which claims they had all the bells and whistles. There was one problem....It made my dogs situation worse. At that point, I decided to give Lid N Lash a try. Just by using a small amount, I did the trick on my pet. Sophie is a 70 LB. White Lab-Pointer mix so those terrible brown stains really ruined her youthful appearance. With Lid N Lash, the stains were greatly diminished and Its almost down to zero. Very simply, I feel comfortable talking about this as It does work.
This is working better than other stuff, so far Reviewed in the United States on May 13, 2021 My Brittany has tear stains, unusual for this breed. I tried all sorts of stuff: changing her food, water, adding suggested foods, and just cleaning with saline solution, cotton ball and toothbrush. The best was the saline solution method, but then it just got worse. The vet suggested this product and, oh my!, it really helped. She still has gunk near her eyes, but it is so much better now. I rub directly on the fur using the cotton and then sometimes use the toothbrush (I make sure I clean it well after each use) and may follow up with a little bit of the saline solution. So worth it for me
Great for crusty eye boogers. Tips for application Reviewed in the United States on March 21, 2015 I'm so glad I found this product. Our yorkie has allergies and dry-eye, resulting in cement-like eye boogers that were nearly impossible to remove with a warm wet washcloth. I have found the best way to use this product is use the warm wet washcloth first, with gentle rubbing and really soaking the crusted area, then apply this product and massage it in. Wait a minute, and use the wet washcloth to gently remove the crust. It works really well and my dog actually likes having her eyes cleaned now--no more pulling on her eyelashes during cleaning. PS--if you suspect allergies, ask your vet if you can give your dog an antihistamine every day. This has helped reduce how often I have to clean my dog's eyes.
Amazing Stuff Reviewed in the United States on November 1, 2019 This is pretty impressive stuff. I apply it liberally to my pug's face around his eyes when he has a buildup of face gunk. He's an old man now and has an assortment of eye issues so sometimes they can crust up a bit. I let the cleaner sit for a few minutes and then everything just wipes right off. It works many times better than water, and it doesn't seem to hurt if I get it in his eyes. I highly recommend you try this if you're dog has eye crust problems.
This is a great eye lubrication for pets with eye problems Reviewed in the United States on June 16, 2018 This is a great eye lubrication for pets with eye problems. Sometimes our dog can have painful looking eyes & a drop of this several times a day, makes it look much healthier. Our Vet prescribed these but, after picking them up each month & paying their markup, I realized Amazon was a much better option. It's a little bit cheaper & it's very convenient to have them delivered directly to our home. The fact that it's the exact same thing that's given to us at the Vet, puts my mind at ease that's it's not only safe for our dog, but the best option we could buy.
Saving & preserving my dog's eyesight, priceless! Reviewed in the United States on February 8, 2018 I have a aging Boston Terrier who has had they typical eye issues of a brachycephalic breed, particularly weepy eyes, dry eye and reduced visual acuity. These have literally worked wonders for him! One drop in each eye once a day and his eyes no longer weep and the accompanying brown tearstains have completely disappeared. The dry eye is completely resolved. Most wonderful is the fact that his vision appears to have made a very marked improvement, I am simply astonished and so very happy. I thought for certain that, like many Bostons, my Jack would be completely blind within two years (he is 9) as he had already begun to have difficulty locating favorite items such as toys at dusk or when the lights were low in the house. He had also begun to occasionally bumping into things. I had been giving him supplements and using another eye ointment. I searched and found this and decided that it was worth trying, needless to say I am so glad that I did. For those curious, one drop in each eye once a day and the bottle lasted a little over 2 months. I opened the bottle 11/27 (wrote it on the box) and just opened a new one on 2/4. To say that I am ecstatic would be an understatement!
I have a breed of cats (exotic shorthair) that have issues with dry eyes due to their large size and flat faces. These drops really help them and keep their eyes lubricated. I have noticed they don't squint as much and it helps with their teary eyes which is normal for the breed.
