Potential for Eye Injury and Sterility of Dropper Tip
To minimize eye injury and contamination of the dropper tip and solution, patients should be advised to not touch the eyelids or surrounding areas with the dropper tip, as this may contaminate the contents.
Concomitant Use with other Ophthalmic Products or Contact Lenses
If more than one topical ophthalmic drug is being used, the drugs should be administered at least five minutes apart.
Patients should be advised not to wear a contact lens if their eye is red. Patients should be advised that LASTACAFT® should not be used to treat contact lens-related irritation. Patients should also be advised to remove contact lenses prior to instillation of LASTACAFT®. The preservative in LASTACAFT®, benzalkonium chloride, may be absorbed by soft contact lenses. Lenses may be reinserted after 10 minutes following administration of LASTACAFT®.
