Expert Advice

  • Helps lower high pressure in the eye and reduces the risk of vision loss.
  • For best results, put one drop 2-3 times daily in the affected eye(s).
  • Rimoflo Eye Drop may cause allergic reaction in the form of eyelid swelling, eye discomfort, foreign-object sensation, redness and itching. Notify your doctor if any of these occur.
  • 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.
