How should I take hypromellose?

Hypromellose is usually provided as eye drops or a gel. Shake the bottle before using it and always wash your hands before handling the eye dropper. Do not let the dropper touch your eye or other surfaces. Tilt your head back and pull down on your lower eyelid, then look up and drop the liquid into your eye. Close your eye and press gently against the inner corner of your eye for a short period, to prevent drops from leaking out. Take the recommended dosage, which varies according to the product and your condition. Usually for dry eyes, most brands recommend one drop, three or four times a day, for adults or children.
