Important Information

  • Before using the eye ointment, read the label on the tube carefully. Using a mirror may make the application of eye ointment easier.
  • Record the date opened on the eye ointment tube. Throw it away immediately once contaminated or after reaching its in-use shelf life as recommended by the manufacturer.
  • If you need to apply both eye drop and ointment, you should apply the eye drop first. Wait for at least 5 minutes before applying the eye ointment.
  • If you need to apply another eye ointment, wait for at least 10 minutes before the application.
  • Eye ointments may cause temporary blurring of vision. You should avoid driving or doing things in places with poor lighting until your vision clears.

 

  • Remove your contact lens before each application of medication. You can put them on 30 minutes after applying the eye ointment.
  • Contact lens wearers who are advised by the doctor NOT to wear contact lenses should strictly follow the doctor’s advice.
