Golden Eye Antibiotic Chloamphenicol (an antibiotic) Eye Ointment

Introducing Chloramphenicol Eye Ointment, a distinctive solution tailored for eye-related concerns. This specialized ointment is exclusively designed for topical application to the eye, harnessing the power of the antibiotic chloramphenicol to target bacterial infections affecting the eye's front surfaces.

The most prevalent condition addressed by this ointment is acute bacterial conjunctivitis, characterized by redness in one or both eyes, along with redness or swelling of the eyelids. Additional symptoms include a sticky discharge, making it challenging to open the eye in the morning, and a sensation of grittiness or irritation.

Please note that Chloramphenicol Eye Ointment is not intended for treating eye infections that have progressed to the deeper layers of the eye coverings or the fluid within the eyeball. In such cases, deeper and more severe infections require antibiotic tablets or injections for appropriate treatment.

Chloramphenicol Eye Ointment is recommended for use in children aged 2 years and over, in adults and the elderly.  A child below the age of 2 with an eye infection should be seen by a doctor.

Key Benefits:

  • Targeted Eye Relief: Specifically formulated for topical application to the eye, delivering effective treatment where it's needed most.
  • Potent Antibiotic: Contains chloramphenicol, a powerful antibiotic, to combat bacterial infections affecting the eye's front surfaces.
  • Focused Treatment: Ideal for addressing acute bacterial conjunctivitis, characterized by redness, swelling, sticky discharge, and eye discomfort.
  • Prompt Relief: Offers relief from symptoms such as redness, irritation, and gritty sensations.
  • Easy Application: Convenient ointment format for straightforward and precise administration.
