  • Apply pressure on the corner of the eye (close to the nose) for about 1 minute, immediately after instilling the drop. This minimizes the risk of side effects.
  • Take care to prevent contact of eye dispenser with eye, eyelid, eyelashes, or finger to avoid infection.
  • Remove contact lenses before using Betagan and allow at least 15 minutes before re-inserting them.
  • When applying multiple eye medications, wait for at least 5-15 minutes before delivering the next medication in the same eye to avoid dilution.
