​ Use your eye drops the right way​


​​1​Wash your hands with soap ​and water before you apply the eye drops.​​
​2​​Read the instructions on the label.
​​​​3
Shake the bottle before using the medication.


​4Remove the seal.

​​5
Sit with your head tilted backward and look up.


​6​Using a finger, gently pull down the lower eyelid to form a pocket.
​7
Hold the bottle with the dropper as close to the eye as possible. Avoid touching the eye with the dropper.


​8
Apply one drop into the eye. 
Replace the eye drops cap after each use.

9​​Place your finger against the inner corner of your eye for 1 minute. This prevents medication from entering the tear duct.
​10​Close your eye gently and minimise blinking.
Do not rub your eyes. 
Wipe off any excess drops around the eye with a tissue.
​11​If you have to apply 2 different types of eye drops at the same time, apply the second eye drop 5 minutes after applying the first. This allows the two different eye drops to work better.
​Store this medicine correctly.
​​​


Store in a cool, dry place.



​Keep the medicine out of the reach of children.


​​Do not keep expired medicines or medicines that are no longer needed. Discard your eye drops 30 days after opening. ​
