Twist off the bottle cap.
Hold the bottle pointing down, between your thumb and fingers.
Tilt your head back.
Pull down your lower eyelid with a finger, until there is a 'pocket' between the eyelid and your eye. The drop will go in here.
Bring the bottle tip close to the eye. Do this in front of a mirror if it helps.
Do not touch your eye or eyelid, surrounding areas or other surfaces with the dropper. It could infect the drops.
Gently press on the base of the bottle to release one drop at a time.
Do not squeeze the bottle, only a gentle press on the bottom is needed.
If you use drops in both eyes, repeat the steps for your other eye.
Put the bottle cap firmly back on immediately after use.
Keep out of the sight and reach of children.
The active substance is hypromellose 5 mg/ml.
