Calgonate® Emergency Eyewash is a convenient, sterile, pH-balanced solution suitable for first aid eye irrigation.

Indication

Calgonate® Emergency Eyewash is indicated to flush loose or liquid acid, alkali, or particulate foreign material from the eye, and help relieve or prevent potential irritation, pain, and damage.

Pharmacology

Calgonate® Emergency Eyewash is a sterilized solution containing Calcium Gluconate USP 1% w/w as well as sodium chloride (saline), sodium borate, boric acid, and benzalkonium chloride in purified water to provide an isotonic, buffered, sterile eyewash.

Usage

Follow directions on the label.

Note: When the material irritating the eye is harmful to tissue, such as acid, it is most important to begin irrigation immediately. Do not spend time searching for any particular product. Start flushing the eye with the most readily available clean cool water or appropriate solution. Switch to a sterile eyewash such as Calgonate® Emergency Eyewash when it is available to do so, or start with it if it is the most readily available option.

Contra-indications

For external use only. Do not use on open wounds. Observe all warnings on the label.
