Important Instructions for Lastacaft
When and How to Use ItSome general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Lastacaft include the following:
- This medication comes in the form of an eye drop. It is typically used in each eye once a day.
- In order to prevent contamination of the drops, do not touch the tip of the dropper to any surface, including the surface of the eye.
- If you wear soft contact lenses, you must remove them to use the drops. In order to prevent the lens from absorbing the medication, make 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.
- For Lastacaft to work properly, it must be used as directed.
