Celluvisc is used to provide moisture to the eyes. It is an ocular lubricant and can treat irritation or tenderness of the eyes.
Store Celluvisc in a cool, dry place, in a well sealed container.
You should not use any other medications applied to your eyes while using Celluvisc. If your eyes do not show any significant changes within 3 days, stop using this medication.
Do not let the dropper or its applicator tip make any contact with the eye; if this happens, an infection could occur and lead to vision loss.
Take Celluvisc exactly as prescribed to you by your health care provider, or as specified on the label. Always clean your hands before you use Celluvisc. As you squeeze the droplet into your eye, close your eye lightly. Press your finger against the inside corner of your eye and hold it there for one minute. Wait at minimum 5 minutes between drops (in the same eye). Only use as many drops as you have been instructed to by your health care provider. If you are using the gel or ointment form of this medication use the directions provided on the label.
If you have any bacterial, viral, or fungal infection in the eye, do not use Celluvisc unless you have an anti-infective medication you have been directed to use also. Do not use Celluvisc while wearing contact lenses.
Severe: Allergic reaction, severe eye pain, vision changes.
