What is Optivar Eye Drops?

Optivar Eye Drops to treat itching eyes caused by allergies. It works by blocking certain natural substances called histamines responsible for allergic symptoms.

Follow your doctor's directions on the prescription. To use Optivar Eye Drops:

  • First, wash your hands.
  • Tilt the head back and, pressing your finger gently on the skin just beneath the lower eyelid, pull the lower eyelid away from the eye to make a space.
  • Drop the Optivar into this space. Let go of the eyelid and gently close the eyes.
  • Keep the eyes closed for 1 to 2 minutes to allow the medicine to be absorbed by the eye. Do not blink.
  • Immediately after using the eye drops, please wash your hands to remove any medicine.
  • Do not touch the applicator tip on any surface to keep the Optivar Eye Drops germ-free. Also, keep the container tightly closed.

Before Taking Optivar Eye Drops

Before using Optivar Eye Drops, tell your doctor and pharmacist:

  • If you are allergic to Optivar or any other medications.
  • Prescription and nonprescription medications, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and herbal products you are taking,
  • If you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding.

I've been a Canadian Med Center customer for about 6 years now. In all that time there was never once that I considered taking my business elsewhere. They do a great job and the people they contract with are also super.

Always appreciate their prompt service but especially appreciate their hanging in there when there was difficulty getting my doctor to renew my prescription!
