How to Apply :
Wash hands with soap and water.
Tilt the head back or lie down and look toward the ceiling.
With the eyes open, gently pull the lower eyelid below the eyelashes away from the eye to form a pouch.
Hold the container at least 2 cm away and squeeze one drop into the pouch. Slowly release the lower lid.
Gently close the eye for one or two minutes. Do not rub the eye and try not to blink.
If multiple drops are prescribed, wait three to five minutes between each drop.
Do not let the bottle directly touch the eye.
Contact lenses should not be worn until the infection has resolved.
