How should I take Optivar?

Optivar should always be used as directed by your doctor. To use Optivar, wash your hands, remove any contact lenses, avoid touching the tip of the bottle to any surface and squeeze one drop into each eye twice daily. If the medication misses your eye, use another drop. Wait 10 minutes before putting your contact lenses back in your eyes. Optivar is available in single-use and multi-use bottles. If you are using a single-use bottle, discard any unused solution immediately after applying the medication.
