It’s extremely rare, but you may experience a reaction to these drops. If you - or the person you’re caring for - have any of the following symptoms, contact your local A&E department and keep hold of this leaflet:

  • severe eye pain
  • nausea and vomiting
  • severe headache
  • blurred vision and seeing halos around lights
  • profuse tearing.

The eye drops we’ve used last for six hours. Do not drive or operate heavy machinery during this time.
