How to use Ocuflox Solution:

Use Ocuflox Solution as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.

Remove excess medicine around your eye with a clean tissue, being careful not to touch your eye. Wash your hands to remove any medicine that may be on them.

  • To clear up your infection completely, continue using Ocuflox Solution for the full course of treatment, even if you feel better in a few days.
  • To prevent germs from entering your medicine, do not touch the tip of the eye applicator with the eye, fingers, or any other surface.
  • Ocuflox Solution should not be used as an injection.
  • If you miss a dose of Ocuflox Solution, use it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not use 2 doses at once.
