Warnings and Interactions

Before you start using this medication, tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to gentamicin, other antibiotics, or other drugs. Genoptic is a solution (liquid) to instill in the eyes and an eye ointment to apply to the eyes. Use gentamicin eye drops or eye ointment exactly as directed by your doctor. If you are wearing soft contact lenses, remove them before putting the drops in your eye. Knowing that your vision may be blurred during your treatment with gentamicin ophthalmic ointment would be best. Avoid rubbing your eyes even if your vision is blurred. Do not drive a car or operate machinery if you cannot see clearly. It would help if you did not touch the tip of the eye dropper or ointment tube or place it directly on your eye. A contaminated dropper or tube tip can infect your eye, leading to serious vision problems.

It would be best if you asked your doctor how to apply the eye drops or follow the guide below:
• Tilt your head slightly and pull down your lower eyelid to create a small pocket. Hold the dropper above the eye with the tip down. Look up and away from the dropper and squeeze out a drop.
• Close your eyes for 2 or 3 minutes with your head tipped down, without blinking or squinting.
• Use only the number of drops your doctor has prescribed. If you use more than one drop, wait about 5 minutes between drops.
• Wait 10 minutes before using any other eye drops your doctor has prescribed.
• Tell your doctor if your condition worsens or if there is no significant improvement despite regular eye drops.

Before you start using Genoptic, inform your doctor about your medical history, especially if you have:
• Heart diseases;
• History of depression/suicidal thoughts;
• Kidney disease;
• Liver disease (including hepatitis B infection);
• Low blood pressure or you are using antihypertensive medicines
