What should I avoid while using Betoptic?

To avoid the risk of spreading bacteria to your eye or to the medication, which can cause eye damage or vision loss, don't allow the tip of the Betoptic S eye drop applicator to touch anything, including your eyes or fingers. Betoptic S may also cause temporarily blurred vision, so avoid driving or other potentially dangerous activities shortly after taking Betoptic. Tell your doctor if you are taking other medications, especially other eye medications or beta-blockers. You should avoid using other eye medications for at least 10 minutes before or after using Betoptic to make sure each drug does its job and to prevent possibly harmful reactions.
