WebMD – How to use Vigamox Drops

眼睛受感染時,醫生通常會開藥水給患者使用。本篇以Vigamox Drops為例,介紹自己如何正確有效地使用眼藥水,並認識眼科在這方面常用的英文。

重要段落翻譯:

點眼藥水前,先洗手。為避免污染,勿讓眼藥水瓶口處點觸任何表面。

將頭向後翹起,注視上方向並拉下眼瞼以成袋狀。將眼藥水瓶放在眼睛上並滴注指定的藥水數量。向下看,輕輕閉上眼睛1至2分鐘。 將一根手指放在靠近鼻子的眼角處,輕輕按壓。這將防止藥物從眼睛流出。 盡量不要眨眼,也不要揉眼睛。 不要沖洗眼藥水瓶。

如果您還有使用其他種類的眼藥水,等至少五分鐘後,再使用其他眼藥。

使用此藥時期間,不要戴隱形眼鏡。根據製造商的說明消毒隱形眼鏡,並在使用隱形眼鏡前諮詢醫生。

To apply eye drops, wash hands first. To avoid contamination, do not let the dropper tip touch any surface.

Tilt your head back, gaze upward and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Place the dropper directly over eye and instill the prescribed number of drops. Look downward and gently close your eye for 1 to 2 minutes. Place one finger at the corner of the eye near the nose and apply gentle pressure. This will prevent the medication from draining away from the eye. Try not to blink and do not rub the eye. Do not rinse the dropper.

If you are using other kinds of eye drops, wait at least five minutes before applying the other medications.

Do not wear contact lenses while you are using this medicine. Sterilize contact lenses according to manufacturer’s directions and check with your doctor before using them.
