To apply the eye drops:

  • Gently press your finger to the inside corner of the eye (near your nose) for about 1 minute to keep the liquid from draining into your tear duct.

Do not use the eye drops if the liquid has changed colors or has particles in it. Call your doctor for a new prescription.
