Your eyes will normally produce just enough natural tears to allow them to move easily and comfortably. If your eyes do not produce enough tears they can become dry, red and painful. Vidisic 0.2% w/w Eye Gel keeps the surface of the eye lubricated when production of tears is less than normal, and has a refreshing, cooling action. The carbomer in this gel holds moisture and releases this onto the surface of the eye to help relieve the feeling of dryness.
How to Use This gel can be used by children, adults and the elderly. The usual dose is to apply 1 drop in the corner of the eye, nearest the nose, 3 to 5 times each day or as required to give enough lubrication. Directions:
Wash your hands before using your gel
Sit down in front of a mirror so that you can see what you are doing
Wipe your eyes to clear any residual wateriness or discharge
Unscrew the cap from the tube and check the nozzle is clean
Hold the tube in an upright position with the nozzle pointing down. This allows a small drop to form, which falls easily from the tip of the nozzle.
Pull your lower eyelid gently down, and then carefully place one drop inside the lower eyelid
Take care not to touch the nozzle tip with your eye or fingers
Release the lower eyelid, and blink a few times to make sure the eye is covered by the gel
Repeat the procedure for your other eye
