Tobradex Eye Ointment -3.5 gm

Product ingredients

Tobramycin is antibacterial

Dexamethasone is an anti-inflammatory

Product uses

  • It is used to treat external bacterial infection of the eye
  • It is used to reduce redness and secretions caused by bacterial infection
  • To prevent or treat inflammation after cataract surgery in the eye in adults and children over 2 years of age.

 

 

Usage Instructions:

  • Use this medication exactly as your doctor has prescribed it. Ask your doctor if you are not sure.
  • Make sure the cap and tube are not broken before using the ointment. Wash your hands and open the tube by unscrewing the cap. Hold the tube of ointment between your index finger and thumb as close to your eyelid as possible.
  • Tilt your head slightly forward and pull the lower eyelid away from your eye to form a pouch between the eyelid and the eye.
  • Carefully squeeze the ointment strip (about 1-1.5 cm), and place the eye ointment strip into the bag between the eyelid and the eye.
  • Next, look down a bit and then make sure your eyelid is gently closed for one to two minutes and then rotate the eyeball in all directions, to promote the spread of the medication over the entire surface of the eye.
  • Apply your eye drops at least 5 minutes apart.
  • Use the medicine at the same time each day.
  • Do not stop using your medications without consulting your doctor.
  • Avoid contact of the ointment tip with the eye or other surfaces to prevent bacterial contamination that could lead to eye infection and serious eye damage.
  • Call your doctor if you suspect the ointment is contaminated.

 

Use in pregnancy and lactation

If you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or while breastfeeding, consult your doctor

Warnings and precautions:

  • Stop using this medicine and talk to your doctor if you develop allergic reactions such as shortness of breath, rash, swelling of the face or neck, low blood pressure, and dizziness. Your doctor should start the appropriate treatment if this occurs.
  • In severe suppurative problems and parasitic eye infections, corticosteroids may mask signs of infection or worsen an existing infection.
  • Talk to your doctor before starting tobramycin/dexamethasone if you wear soft contact lenses.
  • This medicine is intended for topical ophthalmic use only and should not be used for injection into the eye.
  • You may feel allergic to this medicine. If this happens, stop using it.
  • Prolonged use of this medicine may cause an overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms, including fungi. In the case of additional infection, your doctor should start the appropriate treatment. Prolonged use may also increase intraocular pressure and/or cataracts.
  • Cross sensitivity to other aminoglycoside antibiotics may occur (you have had a hypersensitivity reaction to other aminoglycoside antibiotics if you have had similar reactions to an aminoglycoside antibiotic).
  • Do not wear contact lenses if you have signs and symptoms of bacterial conjunctivitis (such as eye discharge, redness, swelling, or itching of the eyes).
  • Talk to your doctor if your eye condition gets worse or if you experience new symptoms. You may become more likely to get an infection when using this medicine.
  • Talk to your doctor before starting this medication if you have a problem that may cause eye tissue to thin (such as rheumatoid arthritis, Fuchs' dystrophy, or after a corneal transplant). Corticosteroid use may increase the risk of eye tissue thinning, which may lead to perforation and may also delay the healing of your eye wound.
  • Talk to your doctor before starting this medicine if you have diabetes (high blood glucose levels) as the risk of increased intraocular pressure caused by a corticosteroid may be higher if you have diabetes.
  • Talk to your doctor if you have blurred vision or other visual problems.
  • Your doctor should monitor your eye pressure frequently.
  • The safety and efficacy of this medicine in children less than 2 years of age has not been established, and therefore it is not recommended in this group of patients.
