Ophthalmic lodoxamide is employed for the treatment of redness, burning, itching, and swelling of the eyes resulting from allergic reactions. Classified as a mast cell stabilizer, lodoxamide operates by averting allergic reactions in the eyes.

Uses and Dosage

Ophthalmic lodoxamide is available in liquid form and is intended for instillation in the eyes. Typically, it is applied four times a day. Utilize lodoxamide eye drops precisely as directed, avoiding deviations in dosage—neither exceeding nor reducing the amount, and refrain from using them more frequently than prescribed by your doctor.

To administer the eye drops, the following steps should be followed:

  1. Thoroughly wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Do not allow the dropper tip to touch the eye or any other surface, and ensure that it is kept clean.
  3. Tilt the head back and pull down the lower lid of the eye using the index finger to form a pocket.v
  4. Hold the dropper as close to the eye as possible without making contact, and brace the remaining fingers against the face.
  5. Squeeze the dropper gently to instill a single drop in the pocket created by the lower eyelid while looking upwards.
  6. Remove the index finger from the lower eyelid and keep the eye closed for 2-3 minutes while tilting the head down.
  7. Apply gentle pressure to the tear duct using a finger.
  8. Use a tissue to wipe off any excess liquid from the face.
  9. Wash hands to remove any residual medication.
