Quick tips

  • Your doctor has prescribed Polykes Eye Drop to reduce dryness in the eyes.
  • To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface.

  • Make sure to use it within 4 weeks of opening the bottle.
  • Try to keep your environment less dry by reducing excessive use of room heaters or using a humidifier.
  • Wear glasses or sunglasses to protect your eyes from wind and dust when out in a hot, dry climate.
