Product Description:

  • This medication is used to treat conditions involving swelling (inflammation) of the eyes and to treat or prevent bacterial eye infections.
  • This product contains neomycin and polymyxin, antibiotics that work by stopping the growth of bacteria. It also contains dexamethasone, an anti-inflammatory corticosteroid that works by reducing swelling.
  • This medication treats/prevents only bacterial eye infections.
  • It will not work for other types of eye infections and may worsen them (such as infections caused by viruses, fungi, mycobacteria).
  • Unnecessary use or overuse of any antibiotic can lead to its decreased effectiveness.

How To Use:

  • This medication is applied to the eye(s), usually 3 or 4 times a day or as directed by your doctor.
  • Do not wear contact lenses while you are using this medicine.
  • Sterilize contact lenses according to manufacturer's directions, and check with your doctor before you begin using them again.
  • To apply the eye ointment, wash your hands first.
  • To avoid contamination, be careful not to touch the tube tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface.
  • Tilt your head back, look upward, and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch.
  • Place a 1/2 inch (1.5 centimeters) strip of ointment into the pouch by squeezing the tube gently. Close the eye and roll the eyeball in all directions to spread the medication.
  • Try not to blink and do not rub the eye.
  • Repeat these steps for your other eye if so directed.
  • Wipe the tip of the ointment tube with a clean tissue to remove extra medication before recapping it. Apply as often as directed by your doctor.
  • If you are using another kind of eye medication (such as drops or ointments), apply the eye drops first and wait at least 5 minutes before applying this eye ointment.
  • Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the eye drops to enter the eye.
  • If you are using another type of eye ointment, wait at least 10 minutes after using this medication before applying it.
  • Do not use this medication more often than prescribed or for longer than 10 days unless directed by your doctor.
  • Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it.
  • To help you remember, use it at the same times each day.
  • Continue to use this medication for the full time prescribed, even if symptoms disappear after a few days.
  • Stopping the medication too soon may allow bacteria to continue to grow, which may result in a return of the infection.
  • Inform your doctor if your condition does not improve in a few days.
