How to use Gatifloxacin Drops
For best results, use exactly as directed for the full time prescribed. Stopping this medication too soon may result in a return of the infection.
To apply eye drops, wash hands first. To avoid contamination, do not let the dropper tip touch any surface.
Tilt your head back, gaze upward and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Place the dropper directly over eye and instill the prescribed number of drops. Look downward and gently close your eye for 1 to 2 minutes. Place one finger at the corner of the eye near the nose and apply gentle pressure. This will prevent the medication from draining away from the eye. Try not to blink and do not rub the eye. Do not rinse the dropper.
If you are using other kinds of eye drops, wait at least five minutes before applying the other medications.
Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve in 7 days.
