What are the usage instructions for Quixin?

Quixin eye drops need to be inserted directly into the eyes. For best results, lean your head back and pull down the lower eyelid. Look up and away and squeeze a drop from the dropper into your eye. After inserting, close your eye and gently press the inside corner of your lid with your fingers for about a minute to keep Quixin from slipping into your tear duct. To avoid contamination and secondary eye infection, do not touch the eye dropper to any surface, including your eyes or hands. Be sure to use Quixin for the entire time your doctor has recommended, even if your symptoms subside after a few days.
