Adverse Reactions
Rarely, the patient may experience burning, the feeling that there is something in the eye, swelling of the conjunctiva (chemosis) and increased blood flow through the conjunctiva (conjunctival hyperaemia). Generally, these complaints will resolve spontaneously. If the complaint is severe, especially if the patient is hypersensitive to Allergo-COMOD eye drops, consult a physician.
Caution For Usage
Instructions for Use and Handling: Remove the protective cap before use. Before using Allergo-COMOD eye drops for the 1st time, hold the bottle with the dropper tip pointing downwards and press the base of the bottle until the 1st drop comes out of the end of the dropper. The bottle is then ready for subsequent uses. Hold the bottle with the dropper tip pointing downwards, and press without interruption down to the stop on the base of the bottle. This activates the mechanism for dispensing 1 drop. In the special COMOD value system, the size and speed of each drop is always the same, regardless of the pressure exerted on the base of the bottle. Tilt the patient's head slightly back, hold the lower eyelid slightly away from the eye and put 1 drop into the lower conjunctival sac. Close the eye slowly. After use, carefully close the bottle again. Essentially, the patient should use the eye drops to avoid contact between the dropper tip and the eye of the skin.
