TOBRADEX EYE DROPS (TOBRAMYCIN/DEXAMETHASONE)

Tobradex Eye Drops Description

If your doctor or ophthalmologist has diagnosed your symptoms of red, watery, inflamed eye as bacterial conjunctivitis, uveitis, or keratitis, it may be recommended that you start treatment with Tobradex Eye Drops. As a preventive measure after eye surgery or an injury, Tobradex Eye Drops will treat your symptoms and guard against any possible infections caused by bacteria.

1 Antibiotic + 1 Anti-Inflammatory = Symptom Relief

Tobradex Eye Drops contain 2 medications; Tobramycin is an aminoglycoside class of antibiotic and Dexamethasone is a corticosteroid. When instilled in the affected eye as directed, Tobramycin will work to interfere with the production of essential proteins that bacteria need and causes them to be faulty or abnormal so they cannot grow new proteins and they will eventually die. Dexamethasone acts to suppress your immune response in order to decrease the production of inflammatory chemicals that cause the pain and redness.

Conditions Treated by Tobradex Eye Drops

Bacterial conjunctivitis involves a red, watery, itchy eye that may also have discharge, and is commonly known as ‘pink’ eye. Young children are more likely to get pink eye due to the close contact they have with other kids, and the lack of hand washing means it can spread quickly throughout their circle of friends, their classroom, and family.

Uveitis is the inflammation of your uvea or mid layer of your eye. It can occur often in people that have an autoimmune condition that causes your own immune system to attack other tissues and organs in your body. Bacterial keratitis affects your cornea and is usually caused by an injury or from your contact lenses. Tobradex Eye Drops will treat your pain, reduced vision, sensitivity to light, inflammation, and protect your eyes from a bacterial infection.

Before Tobradex Eye Drops is Prescribed

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding to avoid any health risks to your unborn or nursing baby. Explain other health matters you have to your doctor and list any OTC or Rx meds you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements. This is to ensure Tobradex Eye Drops are safe for you to use.

Tobradex Eye Drops Precautions

Instilling Tobradex Eye Drops will temporarily impair your vision so do not drive or attempt any task that may be considered unsafe without normal vision. Do not allow the dropper to touch your eye or other surfaces as this could contaminate the dropper and the contents. Remove contact lenses before using Tobradex Eye Drops as they may stain and wait at least 15 minutes before putting contacts back in. All medications should be stored safely out of children’s reach and never shared with anyone else.
