Hello,


Thanks for your question.


Otic drops should not be used in the eyes as it can cause increased eye pressure.

mysticdoc :

But one time accidental use should not cause any problem.

mysticdoc :

Wsh the eyes well with clean water for 5 minutes.

mysticdoc :

Observe for any blurry vision or redness of the eyes or eye pain.

mysticdoc :

Without these symptoms, this is not worrisome.
