GENERIC NAME: NAPHAZOLINE WITH ANTAZOLINE - OPHTHALMIC (nah-FAZZ-oh-leen WITH an-TAZZ-oh-leen, off-THAL-mick)
BRAND NAME(S): Vasocon-A
USES: Naphazoline is a decongestant and antazoline is an antihistamine. The combination is used to relieve redness, puffiness, itchy and watering eyes associated with colds, allergies or eye irritations.
HOW TO USE: This medication is for use in the eyes only. To apply eye drops, wash hands first. To avoid contamination, be careful not to touch the tip of the dropper or let it touch your eye. Tilt your head back, gaze upward and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Place dropper directly over eye and administer the prescribed number of drops. Look downward and gently close your eye for 1 to 2 minutes. Place one finger at the corner of the eye near the nose and apply gentle pressure. This will prevent the medication from draining away from the eye. Try not to blink and do not rub the eye. Do not rinse the dropper. If you are using another kind of eye drop, wait at least five minutes before applying other eye medications.
