I.E., can I resume my normal activity after the drop is applied? Or should I let the drop settle into my eye for a few minutes
Follow your eye surgeon's directions for using your eye drops. Tilt your head back, look upward, and gently pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Hold the dropper directly over your eye and place one drop into the pouch. Look downward and gently close your eyes for 1 to 2 minutes. Try not to blink and do not rub your eye. Repeat these steps for your other eye if so directed.
Do not rinse the dropper. Replace the dropper cap after each use.
If you are using another kind of eye medication (e.g., drops or ointments), wait at least 5 minutes before applying other medications. Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the eye drops to enter the eye.
After the initial 1-2 minutes of waiting after you place the drop, you can then resume normal activities.
