I used it for about a year and it seemed to help a little.  I stopped for awhile because of the price and then began again.  When Xiidra came out, I had such good results with it, that I stopped the Restasis.

I use it twice a day and it seems to help my dryness.  I think I have some blepharitis though b/c my eyelids are often a little red. They say it's best to put a warm washcloth on your eyelids but I just don't do that.
