Introduction

Oculate Eye Drop is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by the doctor. Refrain from touching the tip of the dropper to avoid contaminating the eye drops.

Using Oculate Eye Drop can make your eyes more sensitive to light. Thus, wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from sunlight and other bright lights. The common side effects include burning sensation, irritation, or temporarily blurring of the vision. Usually, these symptoms resolve quickly. However, if the symptoms persist for a longer duration, contact your doctor. It is not advised to drive after using this medicine as it may cause blurring of the vision.

It is used by an eye specialist and should not be self-administered.

In Uveitis

This may cause sudden noticeable symptoms such as pain, redness, blurred vision, swelling etc. It may even occur after an eye procedure of surgery such as cataract surgery. Oculate Eye Drop helps relieve these symptoms and improves the eye health. It should be used as advised by the doctor to get the most benefit.
