How should I use Emadine?

You should use Emadine exactly as directed by the doctor. Typically, this will be to place one drop in each affected eye up to four times a day. Take care not to let the tip of the dropper touch your eyelid or the skin surrounding your eye. Doing so could contaminate the dropper tip and the solution. If you wear soft contact lenses, wait at least 10 minutes to insert them after you use Emadine. If your eye is still red, don't wear contact lenses. Don't use Emadine to relieve eye irritation caused by contact lenses.
