How to use Xiidra (lifitegrast ophthalmic solution) 5%.

Let’s start with a little prep work. See those lovely hands of yours? Give ‘em a good scrub with soap and water. That’s good. And if you wear contact lenses, take ‘em out before using Xiidra. For more helpful prep work info, check out the Instructions for Use that came with your prescription.

Start by opening the foil pouch and breaking off a single-use container of Xiidra. It isn’t as fun as popping bubble wrap, but it’s close. This one container will be used for both of your eyes.

Tuck the remaining single-use containers back in their foil pouch and tell them you’ll see them soon. Fold over the edge of the pouch so the containers are nice and snug.

Before applying, hold the single-use container upright and give it a few friendly taps to make sure the solution is settled in the bottom of the container. Then twist the top off like it’s the world’s most adorable bottle of soda. To avoid contamination, make sure the container tip doesn’t touch anything.

Next, tilt your head backwards. If tilting your head back isn’t your thing, try lying down. No napping! Make sure the solution has moved to the tip of the Xiidra container, then place the tip of the container close to (but not touching) your eye. Give the container a gentle squeeze, letting one drop fall gracefully into your eye. If you miss, don’t freak out…just try again. There’s some extra solution in the container in case you do miss.

Using the same container of Xiidra, repeat these steps with your other eye. You only need one drop in each eye. And just like that…you’re done! Toss the spent single-use container and any remaining solution in the trash – don’t save it. If you wear contacts, wait 15 minutes before popping them back in.

That’s it! Repeat these steps every 12 hours, morning and evening. If you have lingering questions, that’s cool – just give your eye doctor a ring. And be sure to read the full Instructions for Use.
