As an eyewash Externally (Eye Application). Shake Well. Place 3-5 drops of the herbal eyewash extract into each of the two CLEAN & STERILE eyecups, one for each eye (left and right). Then pour some boiling distilled water in each eyecup almost filling it to the rim of the eyecup glass. Then let the two full eyecup glasses cool normally to room temperature. (DO NOT USE UNTIL THE EYECUPS & EYEWASH SOLUTION HAVE RETURNED BACK TO ROOM TEMPERATURE. DO NOT USE IF EITHER EYE CUP GLASS CRACKED DURING THIS PROCESS). With contacts removed and once the eyecup and eyewash solution have cooled, tip head forward, put the eyecup with solution up to the eye and press it gently against the face with the eyecup surrounding the eye. Then tilt the head backwards, blinking the eye as though swimming under water. Blink a few times. There will be a burning sensation (during and slightly after this process), which will turn the eye red when using the eyewash, THIS IS NORMAL! (the burning sensation will go away) Repeat the same process with the other eye, using the clean solution (do not use the same eyecup for the other eye). The best time to do this procedure is before retiring for bed.
Store in a cool dry place.
Warning: Temporary burning is normal.
