Applying the ciclosporin eye preparation

Please contact your veterinary practice if you are unsure how to use your animal's medication.

  1. There is 3.5g of ointment in a 10g tube. This means you should always expect some air in the tube when you use this product.
  2. Unlike many other eye treatments, only a small amount is used each application - the size of a small grain of rice (5mm).
  3. Gloves should be worn during application.
  4. Keep the product at room temperature. Don't roll the tube at the bottom to get the ointment out - it may split and cause wastage.
  5. Apply the product twice a day, ideally at 12 hourly intervals. Discard any unused product after 1 month.
