What are Optrex Infected Eye drops used for?
Optrex Infected eye drops contain an antibiotic called chloramphenicol. It is used to treat bacterial infections
that affect the front surfaces of the eye. The most common type of infection in this area is called acute bacterial conjunctivitis.
When you have this Condition, the white part of one or both of your eyes will be red and/or your eyelids may 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 drops are 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, more serious infections.
