How To Use
  • Use this medication in the affected eye(s), usually 1 drop twice daily or as directed by your doctor.
  • Exactly follow your doctor's directions on how often to take this drug.

  • To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface.
  • Shake the bottle well before use.Tilt your head back, look upward, and gently pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch.
  • Hold the dropper directly over the eye and place one drop in the pouch.
  • Look downward and gently close your eyes for 1-2 minutes.
  • Place one finger at the corner of the eye near the nose and apply gentle pressure to prevent the medication from draining out.
  • Try not to blink and do not rub the eye.
  • This will prevent the medication from draining away from the eye.
  • Repeat these steps for your other eye if directed by your doctor.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 10 minutes before applying other medications.
