Always use this medicine exactly as the doctor has told. Check with the doctor or Pharmacist if the patient is not sure. The appropriate dosage and duration of treatment will be established by the doctor.
The usual dose is one drop in the affected eye(s) in the morning and in the evening.
If the patient is using this medicine with another eye drop, the drops should be instilled at least 10 minutes apart.
Do not change the dose of the medicine without consulting the doctor.
Instructions for use: Do not touch the surface of the eye or its surrounding area with the dropper tip.
The eye drops may be contaminated with bacteria that cause eye infections if the product is handled improperly or if the dropper comes into contact with the eye and its surrounding area. Using a contaminated solution may cause serious damage to the eye and subsequent loss of vision. Wash the hands before use and avoid contact between the dropper and any surface in order to avoid possible contamination of the drops. If the patient suspects that the drops may be contaminated or they develop an eye infection, consult the doctor immediately regarding any further use. After application of LAMISOPT PLUS, press the inside corner of the eye against the nose for 2 minutes. This helps the active substances from getting into the system (into the rest of the body).
1. Before using the product for the first time, make sure that the safety strip on the front of the bottle is intact. There is a small gap between the bottle and the cap in an unopened bottle.
2. After tearing off the safety strip the cap can be removed.
3. To open the bottle, unscrew the cap by turning as indicated by the arrows on the top of the cap. The cap must not be pulled directly up and away of the bottle. Pulling the cap directly up, would prevent the dispenser from operating properly.
4. Tilt the head back and pull the lower eyelid down slightly to form a "pocket" between the eyelid and the eye.
5. The bottle should be inverted and pressed lightly with the thumb and index finger until one drop is applied in the eye, as instructed by the doctor. DO NOT TOUCH THE SURFACE OF THE EYE OR ITS SURROUNDING AREA WITH THE DROPPER TIP.
6. If drop dispensing is difficult after opening for the first time, replace the cap on the bottle and tighten (do not over-tighten), then remove it by turning the cap in the opposite direction, as indicated by the arrows on the top of the cap.
7. Repeat steps 4 and 5 with the other eye if instructed to do so by the doctor.
8. Replace the cap and tighten it so that it is securely closed. The arrow on the left side of the cap must be aligned with the arrow on the left side of the bottle label for proper closure. The cap must not be tightened excessively because the bottle and cap may get damaged.
9. The dispenser tip is designed to provide a single drop, therefore DO NOT ENLARGE THE HOLE of the dispenser tip.
10. After dispensing all doses, a small amount of the product will remain in the bottle. Do not worry about this at all, as a small amount of extra LAMISOPT PLUS has been added and the patient has used up the full amount of this medicine as the doctor has prescribed. Do not try to obtain the rest of the medicine from the bottle.
If the patient uses more LAMISOPT PLUS than they should: If the patient puts too many drops in the eye or swallow any of the contents of the container, among other effects, they may become light-headed, have difficulty breathing, or feel that the heart rate has slowed. Contact the doctor immediately.
If the patient forgets to use LAMISOPT PLUS: It is important to use this medicine as prescribed by the doctor.
If the patient misses a dose, use it as soon as possible. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to the regular dosing schedule.
Do not use a double dose to make up for the forgotten dose.
If the patient stops using LAMISOPT PLUS: If the patient wants to stop using this medicine talk to the doctor first.
If the patient has any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask the doctor or pharmacist.
