The FDA recently approved Xiidra™ as a treatment for the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease. It is the first and only prescription eye drop approved for both the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease. This remarkable product is available by prescription only and is now available at all major pharmacies. Matossian Eye Associates was one of the premier clinical trial sites to offer valuable contributions and interest in this important milestone, playing an instrumental role in making this new treatment available for our patients. Owner, Founder, and Chief Medical officer of Matossian Eye Associates and Principal Investigator in the Xiidra™ clinical study Cynthia Matossian, MD, FACS said, “With the epidemic of Dry Eye Disease, we are fortunate to have an additional medicine like Xiidra™ to bring relief to the millions who suffer dry eye symptoms daily.”
Matossian Eye Associates is one of the few practices in the greater area to have samples of Xiidra™ for our patients to try.
