Uses
Naphazoline is a decongestant used to relieve redness, puffiness, and itchy/watering eyes due to colds, allergies, or eye irritations (smog, swimming, or wearing contact lenses). It is known as a sympathomimetic (alpha receptor agonist) that works in the eye to decrease congestion.
Notes
  • If your symptoms are due to allergies, avoid allergens that may be the cause of your symptoms.
  • Some common causes of allergies include pollen, grasses, weeds, dust mites, and pet dander.Do not share this medication with others.This medication has been prescribed for your current condition only.
  • Do not use it later for another condition unless directed to do so by your doctor.
  • A different medication may be necessary in that case.

Storage
  • Store dropper bottle upright at room temperature between 68-77 degrees F (20-25 degrees C) away from moisture and sunlight.
  • Do not store in the bathroom.
  • Discard if drops become discolored or cloudy.
  • Keep all medicines away from children and pets.


How To Use
  • To apply eye drops, wash your hands first.
  • To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface.Remove contact lenses before applying the eye drops.
  • Wait at least 10 minutes after using this medication before inserting contact lenses.This medication is used in the affected eye(s), usually every 3 to 4 hours as needed 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 the 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 the eye near the nose and apply gentle pressure.
  • This will prevent the medication from draining away from the eye.
  • Try not to blink and do not rub the eye.
  • Repeat these steps if your dose is for more than 1 drop and for the other eye if so directed.Do not rinse the dropper.
  • Replace the dropper cap tightly after each use.If you are using another kind of eye medication (e.g., drops or ointments), wait at least 5 minutes before applying other medications.
  • Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the eye drops to enter the eye.Overuse of this type of medication may result in increased eye redness (rebound hyperemia).
  • Tell your doctor if this occurs or if your condition persists or worsens after 48 hours.

Side Effects
  • Stinging, redness, widened pupils, or blurred vision may occur.
  • If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects.
  • Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.Tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: dizziness, nausea, sweating, drowsiness, weakness, nervousness, worsening redness/itching/swelling in or around the eyes.Tell your doctor immediately if any of these rare but very serious side effects occur: eye pain, other vision problems, headache, decrease in body temperature, irregular heartbeat.A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare.
