Usage and Instructions
The usual dose is 1-2 drops of Celluvisc in the affected eye, or in each affected eye, 4 times a day, or as often as needed.
Celluvisc is safe to use even if you’re wearing contact lenses.
Always make sure that your single-dose container is undamaged and unopened before use, use the solution immediately after opening, and then discard when done.
To avoid contamination or infection, wash your hands before use, and take care not to let the open end of the single-dose container touch your eye or anything else.
Unless your pharmacist or doctor has recommended differently, simply follow the package instructions as per the below:
- Tear one single-dose container from the strip.
- Hold the single-dose container upright (with the top uppermost) and twist off the top.
- Gently pull down the lower eyelid to form a pocket. Turn the single-dose container upside down and squeeze it to release one drop into each eye. Blink your eyes a few times.
It is very important to note, that this solution does not store well once the container is opened. In other words, do not re-use the single-dose container, even if there is some solution left. Discard the container and any left-over solution immediately after use.
While used containers can be safely disposed of as household waste, you can do your part to protect the environment by returning unused containers to your pharmacist or chatting to them about how you can dispose of containers responsibly.
Avoid Celluvisc if you are allergic to carmellose sodium or any of its ingredients.
If you feel your eye condition is getting worse, or if irritation, pain, redness, or changes in your vision occur, stop taking this medicine immediately and speak to your doctor or pharmacist.
If you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including over-the-counter medicines, please mention this to your doctor or pharmacist.
If you are also using other eye drops, make sure you use those drops and Celluvisc drops at least 15 minutes apart.
Celluvisc is safe for use if you are pregnant and when you are breastfeeding.
Celluvisc does not usually cause blurred or unclear vision. But if you do experience temporary blurring, wait until your sight is clear before you drive or operate machinery.
If you are unsure about anything, discuss it with your doctor, nurse or pharmacist.
Using a little more Celluvisc than indicated will not cause any harm, and if you forgot to use Celluvisc, simply use a single drop per eye that needs treatment as soon as you remember. Thereafter you can go back to your regular routine.
If you have any other questions about Celluvisc, feel free to speak to your doctor or pharmacist.
