For the treatment of acute bacterial conjunctivitis.

Optrex Bacterial Conjunctivitis 1%w/w Eye Ointment

 

Optrex Bacterial Conjunctivitis 1%w/w Eye Ointment is a topical ointment for administration to the eye only. It contains an antibiotic called chloramphenicol and is used to treat bacterial infections that affect the outer surface of tile eye.

 

The most common type of infection in this area is acute bacterial conjunctivitis. When you have acute bacterial conjunctivitis the white part of one or both of your eyes will be red, and /or your eyelids will be red or swollen. There will be a sticky discharge, which can make the eye difficult to open in the morning and the eye may feel 'gritty' or 'irritated'.

 

Chloramphenicol eye ointment is not suitable for treating eye infections that have spread to the deeper layers of the eye coverings or into the fluid within the eyeball. Antibiotic tablets or injections are needed to treat these deeper and more serious infections.

 

Optrex Bacterial conjunctivitis 1% w/w eye ointment. For the treatment of acute bacterial conjunctivitis in adults and children aged 2 years and over. Contains chloramphenicol 1% w/w. Always read the label.
