  • If either is present, do not use the medication.For eye exams, 1 dose of this medication is usually given immediately before the exam.
  • For eye procedures, 1 to 5 doses may be given every 5 to 10 minutes or as directed by your doctor.
  • Tilt your head back, look upward, and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch.
  • Hold the dropper directly over your eye and place 1 drop into the pouch.
  • Look downward and gently close your eyes for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Place one finger at the corner of your eye (near the nose) and apply gentle pressure.
  • This will prevent the medication from draining out.
  • Try not to blink.
  • Do not touch or rub your eye because the eye temporarily has no feeling and it can be scratched without your knowledge.
  • Repeat these steps for your other eye if so directed or if your dose is for more than 1 drop.Do not rinse the dropper.
  • Replace the dropper cap after each use.If you are using another kind of eye medication (e.g., drops or ointments), wait at least 5 to 10 minutes before applying other medications.
  • Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the drops to enter the eye.Do not use this medication more often or use longer than prescribed.
