What is witch hazel?

How do I use eye drops?
You can apply eye drops while sitting, standing or lying down - whatever you find the easiest and most comfortable.
Tilt your head back and position your finger below your lower-lid and gently pull down to form a pocket.
Look upwards and squeeze the bottle until the recommended drops are deposited into the pocket.
Then close your eyes, don’t blink, and keep them closed for a couple of minutes to allow the product to sink in.
Afterwards, dab around your eyes to remove any excess product.

Can I use eye drops with contact lenses?
If you have an eye problem, it’s best to avoid using contact lenses until your condition has improved.

If you have an eye infection such as pink eye, allergies or an eye injury, apply the drops to your natural eye and don’t use your lenses afterwards.
