How should I use Betoptic S?

You should use Betoptic S eye drops exactly as directed by your doctor. Typically, this will be one or two drops in each eye twice daily. To apply these prescription eye drops, first wash your hands. Tilt your head back or lie down, holding your lower eyelid open with one finger. Look up and away from the eye dropper; steady the hand holding it on your cheek. Gently squeeze the correct number of drops into the space between the lower eyelid and the eye. Avoid applying eye drops directly onto the eye, which can cause irritation.

To avoid eye infection, never let the tip of the eye drop applicator touch your eye, fingers or any surface. After applying the medication, close your eye and gently press on the lower lid with your fingers to make sure the liquid doesn't roll out. If your doctor wants you to take more than one drop in each eye, wait roughly five minutes between applying each drop. When you are finished, replace the cap tightly without wiping it off.
