1.What Hypromellose 0.3% w/v
Eye Drops are and what they
are used for
Hypromellose 0.3% w/v Eye Drops are
a soothing emollient solution used as
artificial tears. It may be used to help
moisten hard contact lenses and to
lubricate ocular prosthetics (artificial
eyes). It prevents damage to the
cornea when the ocular surface is not
properly lubricated and covered by the
eyelids. Hypromellose 0.3% w/v
provides relief of dry eye conditions
(including those associated with the
use of VDUs and TVs, infrequent
blinking, certain medical treatments,
atmospheric pollution and drying
atmospheres, e.g. air conditioning,
central heating, wind and sun).

2. Before you use Hypromellose
0.3% w/v Eye Drops
Take special care with Hypromellose
0.3% w/v Eye Drops if you:
• are allergic/sensitive to any of the
ingredients in this product,
• wear soft contact lenses,
• are pregnant or breast-feeding,
• are taking other medicines.
Hypromellose may increase the time
other medicines stay in the eye.

Please tell your doctor, if you are
using this medicine and develop signs
of irritation or sensitivity.
Taking other medicines
Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if
you are applying any other type of eye
drops or eye ointment before you start
to use this medicine. Your medicine
may affect their action and could alter
their effect.
Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if
you are taking or have recently taken
any other medicines, including
medicines obtained without any
prescription.
Pregnancy and breast-feeding
If you are pregnant or breast-feeding
you should discuss this with your
doctor before you start to apply the eye
drops.
Driving and using machines
Do not drive or operate machines if
you have blurred vision after using
Hypromellose 0.3% w/v Eye Drops.
You should wait until this clears before
driving or using machines.

3. How to use Hypromellose
0.3% w/v Eye Drops
Always use Hypromellose 0.3% w/v
Eye Drops exactly as your doctor has
told you. You should check with your
doctor or pharmacist if you are not
sure.
The dose depends upon the need for
lubrication. Usually 1-2 drops should
be administrated into each eye three
times daily, or as directed by your
doctor. People who wear soft contact
lenses should remove their lenses
before putting in the drops and wait at
least 15 minutes before re-inserting
their lenses.
To help keep the contents sterile, do
not allow the dropper to touch your
eyelids, fingers or any other surface.
Throw away the unused contents of
the bottle after 28 days from first
opening it.
Overdose
There is no experience of an
overdosage with Hypromellose Eye
Drops which is unlikely when given as
eyedrops. If you accidentally swallow
them contact your doctor.

4. Possible side effects
Like all medicines, Hypromellose 0.3%
