Most adverse reactions with Lacrisert were mild and transient and included transient blurring of vision, ocular discomfort or irritation, matting or stickiness of eyelashes, photophobia, hypersensitivity, edema of the eyelids, and hyperemia. Lacrisert should not be used by patients who are hypersensitive to hydroxypropyl cellulose. If improperly placed, Lacrisert may result in corneal abrasion.

Lacrisert, as demonstrated in several clinical studies, can help to alleviate symptoms in moderate to severe dry eye patients who may not be receiving adequate relief from artificial tears or who may use preserved tears too often. In a study comparing Lacrisert once-daily with artificial tears used at least 4 times a day, Lacrisert was more effective at relieving symptoms and was able to help existing tears stay longer on the eye surface. Most patients in clinical studies preferred Lacrisert over artificial tears. Lacrisert has also been shown to be effective in patients with dry eye due to Sjogren's syndrome. There are no known interactions with other eye medications.
