Dexamethasone 0.1% Ophthalmic Solution should be applied as directed by your veterinarian. Administer prescribed dose by pulling down on the bottom lid of your pet’s eye and dropping the prescribed drop(s) into the eye. Exercise proper caution not to touch the dropper or tube opening to any surface including eyes or hands as that may contaminate the sterile surface. Wash hands before and after application.  If using with other eye drops, separate dosing by 5 minutes.
Missed Doses
Give the dose as soon as possible. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose, and continue with the regular schedule. Do not give 2 doses at once.
Side Effects
Possible side effects may include: tearing, redness, blurring of vision, and itching which may result in your pet rubbing their eyes. With prolonged use, this medication may increase the pressure in the eye (glaucoma), may reduce wound healing, or may lead to infection.
Other side effects may occur, if you notice anything unusual, contact your veterinarian.
