Description

What is Zovirax Eye Ointment?

Ophthalmic acyclovir is used to treat an infection of the eye caused by herpes simplex virus. Acyclovir is in a class of antiviral medications called synthetic nucleoside analogues. It works by stopping the spread of the herpes virus in the eye.

Always read the patient information and instructions carefully before using this medication.

  • Ophthalmic acyclovir comes as an eye ointment to apply to the eyes.
  • It is usually applied five times a day (about every 3 hours while awake) until the eye heals, and then 3 times a day for another 7 days.
  • Apply acyclovir eye ointment at around the same times every day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand.
  • Use acyclovir eye ointment exactly as directed. Your doctor will tell you when you can start using ophthalmic acyclovir 3 times a day. Do not use more or less of it, or use it more often than prescribed by your doctor.
  • You should expect your symptoms to improve during your treatment. Call your doctor if your symptoms get worse or do not go away, or if you develop other problems with your eyes during your treatment.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water. Use a mirror or have someone else apply the ointment. Avoid touching the tip of the tube against your eye or anything else. The ointment must be kept clean.
  • lt your head forward slightly. Holding the tube between your thumb and index finger, place the tube as near as possible to your eyelid without touching it. Brace the remaining fingers of that hand against your cheek or nose. With the index finger of your other hand, pull the lower lid of your eye down to form a pocket. Place a 1 cm (about a 1/2 inch) strip of ointment into the pocket made by the lower lid and the eye. Gently close your eyes and keep them closed for 1 to 2 minutes to allow the medication to be absorbed.
  • Replace and tighten the cap right away. Wipe off any excess ointment from your eyelids and lashes with a clean tissue. Wash your hands again.

Cautions

Make sure to tell your doctor and pharmacist:

  • If you have any drug allergies.
  • Which other prescription and non-prescription medications you currently take.
  • Your medical history.
  • If you are pregnant, planning on pregnancy or breast feeding.

Side Effects

Common side-effects may include but are not limited to:

  • Eye stinging, red, swollen, or itchy eyelids

Contact your doctor if you experience any of the following side-effects:

  • Hives, itching, rash, swelling of the eyes, face, lips, mouth, throat, or tongue
  • New or worsening red, watery eyes, eye sensitivity to light, blurred vision, or pain around the eye.

FAQs

 

Q: What special dietary instructions should I follow?

A: Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, continue your normal diet.

Q: What should I do if I forget a dose?

A: Apply the missed dose as soon as you remember it. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Do not apply extra ointment to make up for a missed dose.

Everything about this order was easy. Canadian Med Pharmacy called me per a previously set-up reminder; the order was verbally confirmed, as well as my payment method and the information was verified. I was notified when the order was placed, as well as when the order was shipped. At that point, I requested a statement for my medical and tax records, and it was promptly emailed to me.
