1. What CLEAR EYES is and what it is used for
This medicine contains the active ingredient naphazoline hydrochloride which belongs
to the group of medicines called local vasoconstrictors which act by narrowing the
blood vessels in the eye, thereby reducing redness and swelling.
CLEAR EYES is an eye drop solution. It is used to relieve occasional, minor redness
and irritation in eyes.
CLEAR EYES starts working within 1 minute and lasts for at least 3 hours.
This product is for intermittent or occasional use only.
CLEAR EYES is indicated in adults and children aged 12 years and over.
You must talk to a doctor if you do not feel better or if you feel worse after 24 hours.

This product must not be used prior to peripheral iridectomy in eyes susceptible
to angle closure.
Warnings and precautions
This product is for intermittent or occasional use only. Following long term or
