How to use Alomide

Alomide is a clear solution for use in eyes only. Usually, one or two drops of solution are administered into the affected eye/eyes. Your doctor will tell you exactly how many drops to use and how long to use them. If you are using other eye medicines, space the application of each type by 5 or more minutes and use ointments last. Symptoms generally improve after a few days but occasionally improvement takes longer, requiring treatment for up to one month.

The drops are administered in the 'pocket' found between your eyelid and eye, which is exposed by pulling down gently the lower eyelid using your finger. After washing your hands and removing the bottle cap, point the bottle downwards and hold between finger and thumb. Tilt your head backwards and expose the eye 'pocket'. Move the bottle dropper near your eye. By pressing (not squeezing) gently on the bottom of the bottle, single drops will be released one after the other via the dropper. It is important that you remember not to touch your eye or eyelid, or anything else with the open end of the bottle as the remaining solution may become contaminated. Once the drops are delivered, let your lower eyelid go and close for about two minutes. Then, for a further two minutes, press the innermost corner of your treated eye to keep as much of the medicine in the eye. Finally, replace the bottle cap. This procedure should be repeated for the other eye if you are treating both eyes.

If any single drop misses the eye, then deliver another drop. If you miss a dose, then administer the usual number of drops when you remember but do not use twice the number to replace those missed. Too many drops to the eye should be rinsed out using warm water. Inform a doctor immediately if you swallow the medicine.

Who can use Alomide?

Contact lenses may worsen allergic conjunctivitis so wearing them is not recommended. If you choose to wear contact lenses, then wait for a minimum of 15 minutes after administering the drops before putting them in.
