Dorzolamide should be instilled as directed by your veterinarian. Administer prescribed dose by pulling down on the bottom lid of your pet’s eye and applying the prescribed amount of drops 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 or ointments, separate dosing by 5 minutes.
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 may include stinging when applied, watering of the eye and sensitivity to light. If these effects continue and become troublesome, contact your veterinarian.
Other side effects may occur, if you notice anything unusual, contact your veterinarian.
