Can I wear contact lenses while using this medicine?
No, you are not recommended to wear contact lenses while using this composition as it contains benzalkonium chloride, a preservative that causes a colour change in contact lenses as it may be absorbed by soft contact lenses. Benzalkonium chloride also causes irritation in the eye especially if you have disorders of cornea (transparent layer at the front of the eye) or dry eyes. Therefore, you are advised to remove contact lenses before applying this eye drop and reinsert after 15 minutes of using it. Also, inform your doctor if you experience pain or stinging in the eye, or abnormal sensation in the eye after using it.
Should I stop using this eye drop before surgery?
Yes, you may need to stop using it before surgery as it may alter the effects of certain medicines that are used during anaesthesia. Therefore, you are recommended to inform your doctor or dentist that you are using this medicine before any surgery or dental procedure.
Does it cause blurred vision?
Yes, this drop may cause temporary blurred vision, double vision or drooping of the upper eyelid (the eye is half closed). Therefore, you are recommended to wait until your vision is clear before driving or operating machinery.
What happens if I use more than the prescribed dose?
You are advised not to use more than the prescribed dose as it may cause adverse effects such as dizziness, light-headedness, headache, chest pain, difficulty in breathing or slow heart rate. However, if you experience any of these symptoms, please consult a doctor immediately.
