How should I use Vigamox?

Vigamox antibiotic eye drops should be used as prescribed by your doctor. The medicine is intended for the eyes. Wash off any solution that gets on any other part of your body. Before using the eye drops, wash your hands. Administer the prescribed number of drops into your infected eye three times each day. Pull down on your lower eyelid to create a place for the drops to sit, apply the drops and hold your eye shut for a few minutes, allowing the drops to stay in contact with the infection. Never touch the dropper's tip to your eye or anything except its cap. Talk to your doctor if you have any other questions about how to use the drops or if you are unable to use them correctly.
