Overview

Introduction

UV Lube Unims Eye Drop 0.5ml is a medicine used to relieve dry eyes. It helps to soothe the irritation and burning seen in dry eyes by reducing inflammation (redness and pain).

Use the number of drops as advised by your doctor. Wait for at least 5-10 minutes before delivering any other medication in the same eye to avoid dilution. Do not use a bottle if the seal is broken before you open it. Always wash your hands before applying the medicine. Gently squeeze the dropper and place the medicine inside the lower eyelid. Wipe off extra liquid. Do not touch the tip of the dropper to any surface, or to your eye, to avoid contaminating the eye drops.

It may cause eye irritation and burning sensation immediately following the application. However, these side effects are temporary and usually subside on their own. Inform your doctor if they persist for a longer duration. Do not wear contact lenses while using it. Do not drive, use machinery, or do any activity that requires clear vision until you are sure you can do it safely.
