  • Wash your hands
  • Twist off the cap
  • Hold the bottle, pointing down, between your thumb and fingers
  • Tilt your head back. Pull down your eyelid with a clean finger, until there is a ‘pocket’ between the eyelid and your eye. The drop will go in here (picture 1)
  • Bring the bottle tip close to the eye. Use the mirror if it helps
  • Do not touch your eye or eyelid, surrounding areas or other surfaces with the dropper. It could infect the drops
  • Gently press the bottom of the bottle to release one drop of medicine at a time (picture 2)
  • After using Moxivig , press a finger into the corner of your eye, by the nose for 2-3 minutes (picture 3). This helps to stop the medicine getting into the rest of the body and is important in young children.

If you are using the drops in both eyes, wash your hands before you repeat the steps for your other eye. This will help prevent spreading the infection from one eye to the other.

Close the bottle cap firmly immediately after use
