Optrex Infected Eye Drops, containing the active ingredient Chloramphenicol, effectively treat acute bacterial conjunctivitis in adults and children alike. This common eye condition is an infection of the outer surface of the eye, leading to symptoms such as redness, discomfort and eye discharge.

Safety and Precautions: Optrex Infected Eye Drops

Although Optrex Infected Eye Drops are generally safe, some individuals should refrain from using them. Do not use these drops if you have had issues with your blood, bone-marrow depression, eye pain, eye injury, eye inflammation with a rash on the scalp or face, unusual pupil appearance, light-sensitive eyes, recent eye infection, glaucoma, dry eye syndrome, recent eye surgery or laser treatment or if you wear contact lenses. If any of these conditions apply, consult a healthcare professional for a more appropriate treatment recommendation.

Side Effects of Optrex Infected Eye Drops

Like all medications, Optrex Infected Eye Drops can cause side effects, though not everyone will experience them. Seek immediate medical attention if you experience signs of an allergic reaction, such as itching, rashes, fever, swelling, hives, wheezing, difficulty breathing, or systemic inflammatory reactions. Consult the Optrex Infected Eye Drops patient information leaflet for a comprehensive list of potential side effects.


Optrex Infected Eye Drops For Styes

Is it possible to use Optrex Infected Eye Drops for styes? The active ingredient, chloramphenicol, has been used effectively to treat styes. However, consult your GP before using it for this purpose, as styes can sometimes be confused with more severe eye infections that require a stronger antibiotic.

The recommended dosage for adults and children over two years is to apply one drop to the affected eye(s) every two hours for the first two days, then every four hours thereafter. Continue the treatment for a total of five days. If your condition does not improve after 48 hours, consult your doctor.

Before using this treatment, ensure you are not sensitive to any of its ingredients. The active ingredient is Chloramphenicol, and the other ingredients include purified water, boric acid, borax, and phenylmercuric nitrate.
