In order to keep the eye drops clean:
- don’t allow the nozzle to touch the eye or anything else,
- don’t allow other people to use your eye drops,
- replace the cap of the eye drops immediately after use
- discard the eye drops four weeks after first opening. But if the treatment is to be continued, keep using the drops until you have arranged a new supply.
If you are using more than one kind of eye drop in the same eye, wait five minutes between drops.
If you are using both drops & ointment in the same eye, always use the drops first and wait five minutes before applying the ointment.
If you wear contact lenses, you should stop wearing them for the duration of your treatment unless otherwise directed by your doctor.
Side effects may arise from the drop being absorbed quickly into the blood stream. You can slow the absorption by pressing your forefinger of your free hand against the lower lid where it meets your nose; or close your eye for 60 seconds.
If you have any questions always ask your Doctor.
