It may be best to use the ointment before you go to bed, while you can use the eye drops as many times as you require during the day. The adverse effects caused by this medicine are usually temporary, and include blurred vision, and a burning or stinging or an irritating sensation in the eyes. If these symptoms persist, immediately inform your doctor. Also consult your doctor if you develop redness in your eyes, or if the initial adverse effects appear to persist.
