Question

 

 

Hi,

I accidentally put 3 times Operil (oxymetazoline and hydrochloridun) for Nose into my eye, because I thought that this are eye drops.

Should I be worried, I have a little irritation now.

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

This nasal drops can cause eye irritation and redness so try to use lubricant eye drops 4-5 times a day for few days.

Also the tip of the bottle could be contaminated from getting contact with nose so if you notice any eye redness with eye discharge, it might be bacterial conjunctivitis and you should visit your eye doctor for further evaluation.
