Precautions for use
The preservative in EYEZEP eye drops, benzalkonium chloride, may cause eye irritation and discolour soft contact lenses. Where appropriate, contact lenses should be removed before application of the eye drops and not replaced for at least 15 minutes following application.
EYEZEP eye drops are not intended for treatment of eye infections.
Use in pregnancy (Category B3)
Use in Children
The use of EYEZEP eye drops can be recommended in children 4 years and older suffering from seasonal or non-seasonal (perennial) allergic conjunctivitis.
The efficacy and safety of EYEZEP eye drops in children under 4 years of age has not been established.
Effect on ability to drive or operate machinery
Due to the low systemic exposure no influence is expected. Patients with seasonal allergic conjunctivitis are likely to experience watery and itchy eyes which may affect vision. The mild, transient irritation that may be experienced after application of EYEZEP eye drops is unlikely to affect vision to any greater extent. However, if there are any transient effects on vision, the patient should be advised to wait until this clears before driving or operating machinery.
