Instructions for use

Before instillation of the eye drops:

  • Wash your hands before opening the bottle.
  • Do not use this medicine if you notice that the tamper-proof seal on the bottle neck is broken before you first use it.
  • When using for the first time, before delivering a drop to the eye, you should first of all practise using the dropper bottle by squeezing it slowly to deliver one drop away from the eye.
  • When you are confident that you can deliver one drop at a time, choose the position that you find most comfortable for the instillation of the drops (you can sit down, lie on your back, or stand in front of a mirror).

Instillation:

  1. Hold the bottle directly below the cap and turn the cap to open the bottle. Do not touch anything with the tip of the bottle to avoid contamination of the solution.
  2. Tilt your head backwards and hold the bottle above your eye.
  3. Pull the lower eyelid down and look up. Squeeze the bottle gently in the middle and let a drop fall into your eye. Please note that there might be a few seconds delay between squeezing and the drop coming out. Do not squeeze too hard.

If you are not sure how to administer your medicine, ask your doctor, pharmacist or nurse.

  1. Blink a few times so that the drop spreads over the eye.
  2. Repeat the instructions 2. – 4. to deliver a drop into the other eye also, if your doctor has instructed you to do this. Sometimes only one eye needs to be treated and your doctor will advise if this applies to you and which eye needs treatment.
  3. After each use and prior to recapping, the bottle should be shaken once in a downwards direction, without touching the dropper tip, in order to remove any residual liquid on the tip. This is necessary in order to ensure delivery of subsequent drops.
  4. At the end of the 28-day in-use shelf life of the medicine, there will be some eye drops left in the bottle. Do not attempt to use the excess medicine remaining in the bottle after you have completed the course of treatment. Do not use the eye drops for longer than 28 days after first opening the bottle.
