You are recommended to use Zymar gatifloxacin eye drops solely for your eyes, by using one drop in the affected eye thrice a day, or as instructed by your doctor for optimal results. Before applying eye drops, wash your hands and do not touch your other eye to avoid contamination.
If you use lenses, take them out before Zymar’s application. Tilt your head back, look upwards, and pull your lower eyelid down. Hold the dropper over your eye and place one drop. Close your eyes for two minutes and gently press. Avoid blinking or rubbing your eyes to prevent draining. Don’t rinse the dropper. Don’t stop the course as that may reduce Zymar’s effectiveness.
Some medical conditions coupled with Zymar eye drops can worsen your state. To prevent such cases, inform your doctor immediately if you have:

You may experience temporary blurred vision, which is why it is strongly cautioned that you avoid driving, using machinery, and other activities that require optimal vision until your doctor approves.

What is a Generic Drug?
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
