Instructions for Patients
- Wash your hands.
- Remove the single dose dropper from the packet by pulling back the paper and then pull off the cap.
- Gently pull down the lower lid.
- Squeeze the dropper and put ONE drop in EACH EYE.
- Do this 45 minutes before the appointment time at the optician.
If you are unable to instill the drops, please arrive at the opticians about 45 minutes early for them to instill them there.
Whilst the drops take effect your child may complain of blurred vision and be a little uncomfortable in bright light or sunshine. This is normal and these side effects can last up to 24 hours.
If your child experiences any other side effects, please telephone the Orthoptic department:
