Ophthalmic lifitegrast is prescribed for alleviating the signs and symptoms associated with dry eye disease. Classified as a lymphocyte function-associated antigen-1 (LFA-1) antagonist, lifitegrast operates by diminishing inflammation in the tissues of the eye.

Uses and Dosage

Ophthalmic lifitegrast is provided in liquid form as a solution for instillation into the eyes. Typically, it is administered twice daily, with each application spaced approximately 12 hours apart. It’s essential to instill lifitegrast consistently at around the same times every day.

Follow the prescribed dosage precisely; avoid using more or less than instructed or using it more frequently than directed by your doctor.

Lifitegrast eye drops are packaged in single-use containers, designed for one dose each. Use the liquid from the container immediately upon opening, and discard the container along with any remaining liquid once the application is complete. Do not retain the leftover liquid in the container for the next dose.

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.
