The combination of white petroleum and mineral oil is employed to alleviate dry and irritated eyes. Common causes for dry eyes include exposure to wind, sun, heating or air conditioning, extended computer use or reading, and certain medications. Eye lubricants are designed to maintain moisture in the eye, safeguard it from injury and infection, and alleviate symptoms associated with dry eyes, such as burning, itching, and a sensation of having something in the eye.

Uses and Dosage

Generally, drops may be used as frequently as needed, while ointments are typically applied 1 to 2 times daily as required. If using an ointment once a day, it is recommended to use it at bedtime.

If you are using another type of eye medication, such as drops or ointments, wait at least 5 minutes before applying other medications. Administer eye drops before eye ointments to ensure the eye drops can penetrate the eye.

If you wear contact lenses, remove them before using most types of eye lubricants. Consult your doctor or pharmacist regarding when you can reinsert your contact lenses. Some eye lubricants, particularly those containing polysorbates, may be compatible with wearing contact lenses. Check the package instructions to confirm whether you can wear your contact lenses while using the product.

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.
  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.
