Chloramphenicol Eye Ointment, 4g
Chloramphenicol eye ointment belongs to a group of medicines called antibiotics. Antibiotics are used for infections caused by bacteria.
Careway Chloramphenicol eye ointment is for simple eye infections called “acute bacterial conjunctivitis”. This is sometimes known as “red eye” because the white part of the affected eye(s) will be red and/or the eyelid(s) will be red or swollen. There may also be a sticky discharge which can make the eye difficult to open in the morning, and the eye may feel ‘gritty’ or ‘irritated’.
Our eyes are often exposed to various harmful substances such as dirt and bacteria. When these irritating substances enter your eye it can irritate the sensitive cornea and infiltrate other components of the eye leading to infection. Chloramphenicol Eye Ointment treats simple eye infections and prevents other problems from occurring which could affect your vision.
