Restasis 3 weeks

Hi.  I have been on Restasis for about 3 weeks now.  I never did go to see an ophthalmologists but only my optometrists.  I know you have told me I should go see an actuall physician/eye md.  I'm still having problems in the afternoons.  My eyes always get that windy/watery feeling like wind is blowing in my eyes around 2:00pm.  I thought it was the lighting at work but I've been off now for spring break & I'm still doing it.  I thought I might wait until I had taken the Restasis for a month or even more before going to see an ophthalmologists.  My question is:  Should I wait it out to see if the Restasis kicks in or should I go ahead and get an exam now?  Thank you for your time.

Both.  My suggestion is to give the restasis about another month or so and then see an ophthalmologist.  There are other treatment options that can be quite helpful.
