If you’re watching TV tonight, you may see a familiar face. We are honored to announce that Dr. Neda Shamie will be the spokesperson in upcoming Restasis® television commercials.
As someone who previously suffered from dry eye symptoms , Dr. Shamie has been a Restasis user for the past five years. Dr. Shamie believes strongly in using the drops to treat and prevent worsening of the largely ignored problem of dry eyes. During her fellowship training, Dr. Shamie’s center played a pivotal role in evaluating the efficacy and utility of Restasis in treating chronic dry eyes due to lack of tear production and inflammation. As such, Dr. Shamie’s knowledge base in treating dry eyes and her passion for understanding and finding dry eye treatment options has flourished over the past decade.
“RESTASIS®, is the prescription medication that is FDA-approved to help increase your eyes’ natural ability to produce tears, which may be reduced by inflammation due to Chronic Dry Eye disease It has truly been a centerpiece in my treatment protocols for my dry eye sufferers.” shared Dr. Shamie.
Through her work with Allergan and Restasis, Dr. Shamie hopes to increase awareness about dry eyes and spread the word nationally about this treatment option.
