This medication is used to reduce pressure in the eye, usually if you have glaucoma.  If the high pressure is not reduced, it could eventually damage your sight.

How to Use

  • Wash your hands.

  • Remove contact lenses (if applicable).

  • Shake well.

  • Do not let the dropper tip touch your eye or any other surface.

  • Tilt your head back, look up and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pocket.

  • Hold the bottle upside down directly over your eye and press on the base of the bottle (do NOT squeeze) to release 1 drop into the pocket.

  • If a drop misses your eye, try again.

  • Look down and close your eye for about 30 seconds.

  • Place a finger at the inner corner of the eye and press. This will reduce the medication from draining out. 

  • Try not to blink, squeeze your eyelids or rub your eyes.

  • Replace bottle cap.

  • Wait 3-5 minutes in between different eye drops (if using multiple types of eye drops).

  • Discard any unused drops 28 days after opening by dropping off to the pharmacy.
