If combining this drug with other topical eye treatments, wait at least five minutes before adding any other drops to your pet’s eye.
Directions of Use
Neo Poly Dex Ophthalmic is a prescription medication, which is generally available as suspension drops and ointment. The drops are often applied to the eye of the pet every two to four hours. Shake well before administering the drops. Though unlikely, in case of an overdose of the medicine, immediately contact a veterinarian or veterinary emergency room.
When applying ointments, place one hand under and around your pet’s chin and lift upward, so the pet’s eyes are looking towards the ceiling. Pull down gently on the lower lid with a finger or thumb, depending upon which eye you are treating. Rest your other hand on top of the pet’s head. Be sure the tip of the tube is pointed away from your pet’s eye so if your pet jerks, the tube tip will not injure the eye. Hold the tube of ointment about one inch from the eye and apply a short ribbon of ointment along the inner edge of the lower lid, starting at the inside corner of the eye. Rotate the tube when you reach the outer portion of the eye to help detach the ointment from the tube. Have your pet blink, and gently hold the eyelid shut. Gently massage the closed eyelid to disperse the ointment. Ointments will blur your animal’s vision for a few minutes after administration. Prevent your pet from bumping into things and becoming injured.
If using eye drops, shake the suspension well before using. Follow the directions above, but squeeze the drops into the corner of the eye, taking care not to touch the sterile dropper to the eye surface. Continue to hold the head back for a moment while the drops disperse over the whole eye surface. Never touch the tip of the tube or dropper to the pet’s eye, lids, or eyelashes. Do not touch the inside of the cap or the dropper or tube tip with your fingers, as this will also contaminate the medication.
