What should I know about Alamast before using it?

Before using Alamast you should remove contact lenses before putting Alamast in your eyes. Leave them out for at least 10 minutes after putting Alamast in your eyes. If your eyes aren't red at that point, you may wear your contact lenses as normal. However, if your eyes are red while using Alamast, don't wear contact lenses. Also, you shouldn't save Alamast and use it for future eye problems. Only use this medication for the particular problem during which it was prescribed by your doctor. Since Alamast may cause your vision to be temporarily blurred, don't drive a car until you know how your eyes respond to this medication.
