How To Use

How To Use Viscotears Liquid Gel

If your doctor has prescribed Viscotears he/she will tell you how and when to use it and the dose will be on the pharmacist’s label.

The usual dosage is:

Adults (including the elderly): One drop in each affected eye, three or four times a day.

Children and adolescents aged to 18 years:

The safety and efficacy of Viscotears in children and adolescents at the posology recommended in adults has been established by clinical experience, but no clinical trial data are available.

If you are not sure ask your doctor or pharmacist.

How to use your eye drops

1. Wash your hands.
2. If you wear contact lenses, remove them before using the drops and do not replace for at least 15 minutes.
3. Hold the tube vertically (see figure 1).
4. Tilt your head backwards (see figure 2).
5. Rest one hand on your cheek and gently pull down your lower eye lid.
6. Look upwards.
7. Insert one drop by squeezing the tube gently (see figure 3).
8. Blink a few times to spread the liquid gel evenly over your eye.
9. Wipe away any excess gel from around the eyelids.
10. Repeat for your other eye if required.

NOTE: Do not touch your eye or the surrounding area with the tip of the dropper as this may cause injury to the eye and contaminate the gel.

If you use more Viscotears than you should, it is not expected that you will suffer any side effects from this, however, should you notice any problems you think are related, seek medical attention. Follow the instructions carefully. If there is anything you don’t understand, ask your pharmacist or doctor.
