Claritin Eye Dosage

The standard dosage of Claritin Eye is one drop in each affected eye, twice a day (with 8 to 12 hours between doses). This is the recommended amount for all people, regardless of age, weight, or severity of symptoms. When using Claritin Eye, make sure the tip of the dropper does not touch any surface, including the surface of the eye (this helps prevent contamination).

An Introduction to Claritin Eye Dosages

There is only one recommended dose of Claritin® Eye (ketotifen ophthalmic solution), regardless of your age, weight, or the severity of your allergy symptoms. As is always the case, do not adjust this amount unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
 

Dose for Eye Allergies

When treating eye allergy symptoms in individuals age three and older, the standard Claritin Eye dosage is one drop in each affected eye twice daily, every 8 to 12 hours, but no more than twice a day.
 
If you wear contact lenses, you must remove them to use the drops. In order to prevent the lens from absorbing the preservatives in the medication, be sure to wait at least 10 minutes after using the drops before reinserting the lens. Do not wear your contact lenses if your eye is still red.
