Chloramphenicol 1% w/w Eye Ointment

Chloramphenicol 1% Eye Ointment is a potent antibiotic designed to combat bacterial eye infections. It effectively eliminates the bacteria responsible for these conditions, alleviating symptoms and resolving the underlying infection.

Key Benefits:

  • Bacterial Infection Treatment: Specifically targets bacterial eye infections, reducing pain, redness, itching, and soreness associated with these conditions.
  • Precise Usage: Follow your doctor's instructions meticulously for administering the ointment in your eye. It should be used at regular intervals as prescribed, and the full course of treatment should be completed even if symptoms improve. Prematurely discontinuing the medication may result in the infection's recurrence or worsening.
  • Effectiveness: Highly effective against a variety of bacteria but is not suitable for viral eye infections. Use only as prescribed by your doctor to prevent unnecessary antibiotic use, which can reduce its efficacy in the future.
  • Common Side Effects: May cause temporary stinging in the eyes and blurred vision. If these side effects persist or worsen, consult your doctor.
  • Special Considerations: Pregnant and breastfeeding individuals should consult their doctor before using this medication. Avoid wearing contact lenses while using the ointment or during a bacterial eye infection. Consult your doctor if you need to use the medicine for longer than five days.

Benefits of Chloramphenicol Eye Ointment: In Bacterial Eye Infections, Chloramphenicol 1% Eye Ointment acts as an antibiotic that inhibits bacterial growth, effectively relieving symptoms and preventing the infection from returning.
