• How long after dilation can I use erythromycin ophthalmic ointment?


    Question:

    How long after having your eyes dilated should you wait to you an erythromycin ophthalmic ointment?


    Answer:

    If you have been prescribed erythromycin ophthalmic ointment, you can use it after your eyes are dilated. Dilating the pupil does not alter the effectiveness of erythromycin ointment. You might ask the ophthalmologists in that office if you still need the erythromycin.
