PATIENT INFORMATION

Patients should be instructed that the Rescula bottle must be maintained intact and to avoid allowing the tip of the bottle to contact surrounding structures, fingers, or any other unintended surface in order to avoid contamination of the bottle or applicator by common bacteria known to cause ocular infections. Serious infections may result from using contaminated solutions.

Potential for Iris Darkening

Potential For Eyelid Skin Darkening

Patients should be informed about the possibility of eyelid skin darkening, which may be reversible after discontinuation of Rescula.

Multiple Therapies

If more than one topical ophthalmic therapy is being used patients should be instructed to administer the drugs at least 5 minutes apart.
