Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.

How to use Vasocidin Solution:

Use Vasocidin Solution as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.

  • To use Vasocidin Solution in the eye, first, wash your hands. Tilt your head back. Using your index finger, pull the lower eyelid away from the eye to form a pouch. Drop the medicine into the pouch and gently close your eyes. Immediately use your finger to apply pressure to the inside corner of the eyelid for 1 to 2 minutes. Do not blink. Remove excess medicine around your eye with a clean, dry tissue, being careful not to touch your eye. Wash your hands to remove any medicine that may be on them.
  • To prevent germs from contaminating your medicine, do not touch the applicator tip to any surface, including the eye. Keep the container tightly closed.
  • To clear up your infection completely, use Vasocidin Solution for the full course of treatment. Keep using it even if you feel better in a few days.
  • Do not use Vasocidin Solution if it is dark brown or has darkened since you began using it. Contact your doctor or pharmacist if you have questions about whether you should use Vasocidin Solution.
  • Do not wear contact lenses while you are using Vasocidin Solution. Take care of your contact lenses as directed by the manufacturer. Check with your doctor before you use them.
