Golden eye drops are effective for treating minor eye infections such as sticky eyes, and mild cases of conjunctivitis in adults and children.
Golden eye drops are sterile when you buy them, so throw away the bottle four weeks after first opening. (If the drops are being used in hospital, the bottle should be thrown away seven days after first opening). To avoid passing on the infection, you should never let anyone else use your drops. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding a baby, do not use Golden eye drops unless they have been prescribed by a doctor. Do not wear hard or soft contact lenses while you are using Golden eye drops. Temporary blurring of vision may occur when the drops are put in the eye(s). Do not drive or operate machinery unless vision is clear. If vision is disturbed or symptoms become worse during use, discontinue using the eye drops and see your doctor. Do not use if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in this product. Store below 25c. Keep out of the reach of children.
Wash your hands. Tilt the head backwards. Pull down lower eye lid. Put one or two drops inside the lower lid. Close the eye several times. Replace the cap on the bottle.
When To Use The Drops
Put one or two drops into the affected eye(s) four times daily. If you forget, put one or two drops in the eye(s) as soon as you remember then go on as before. You should see your doctor if there is no real improvement after two days.
