How To Use
  • HOW TO USE THIS MEDICATION: One drop is placed in the affected eye(s) once daily in the evening.
  • Avoid touching the dropper tip to your eye.
  • This will help protect the bottle from becoming contaminated with bacteria.
  • Pull the lower lid out forming a pouch and place one drop in the eye.
  • Apply pressure to the inside corner of the eye for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • This will keep the medicine in the eye area longer.
  • If more than one eye medication is being used, wait 5 minutes before using the next eye drop.
  • The preservative in this product may be absorbed by contact lenses.
  • Contact lenses should be removed before using this drug.
