Dose Adjustments

Alternatively, in patients with more severe or uncontrolled glaucoma, levobunolol 0.5% solution 1 drop in each affected eye(s) twice a day may be administered. However, dosages greater than this generally do not result in increased effectiveness.

Precautions

Remove contact lenses before administration and wait at least 15 minutes before reinserting them.

Wait at least 5 minutes before instilling other eyedrops.

Patients should be instructed to avoid allowing the tip of the container to contact the eye, eyelid, fingers or any other surface to avoid contamination.

Safety and effectiveness have not been established in pediatric patients (less than 18 years of age).

Other Comments

Because levobunolol has little or no effect on pupil size, this drug should not be used alone in patients with angle-closure glaucoma, but only in combination with a miotic.
