TOBREX EYE DROPS (TOBRAMYCIN EYE DROPS)

The Most Common Bacterial Eye Infection

Bacterial Conjunctivitis is one of the most common reasons you are prescribed Tobrex Eye Drops or generic Tobramycin Eye Drops. Your doctor may refer to your bacterial conjunctivitis as “pink eye”, although not the viral infection also called pink eye. Both viral and bacterial conjunctivitis are contagious to others through direct contact so hand-washing is important if you have rubbed at your eyes and have any direct contact with other people or objects you’ve touched or used that someone else could use as well. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Tobrex Eye Drops Work to Stop the Infection

Tobrex Eye Drops contain an aminoglycoside drug that is absorbed into your eye or eyes after instilling as directed. Once absorbed, this antibiotic will block bacterial protein synthesis. The bacteria will then be unable to carry out vital functions, including asexual reproduction, without the essential proteins and they die. Tobrex Eye Drops will not treat viral conjunctivitis, another type of pink eye that is also contagious but usually clears up on its own.

Differences Between Bacterial and Viral Conjunctivitis

Bacterial conjunctivitis can present with a sticky yellow to greenish eye discharge or pus caused by the bacteria. The conjunctiva is the mucous membrane that lines your eyelids and the surface of your eyes and it will become red, swollen, and painful, and one or both eyes can be affected. Viral conjunctivitis causes redness in the whites of your eyes, swollen eyelids with itching and burning, lots of tearing and clear to whitish drainage. This usually clears up in 5-7 days on its own. It is these symptoms your doctor will look for to diagnose if you have bacterial or viral conjunctivitis.

Before You Start Instilling Tobrex Eye Drops

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding so you can know if there is any harmful effects to your unborn or nursing baby. Discuss all over the counter and Rx drugs with your doctor that you currently take or use to ensure the safety of adding Tobrex Eye Drops to your daily routine. If you wear contact lenses, remove them before administering the Tobrex Eye Drops and wait at least 15 minutes before reinserting them. Wash your hands before and after using the Tobrex Eye Drops.

Tobrex Eye Drops Precautions

Do not touch the tip of the applicator to any part of your eye or the drops can become contaminated. If your symptoms show no sign of improving after a few days of treatment with Tobrex Eye Drops, revisit your doctor for further instructions. Keep all medications out of children’s reach and never share them with anyone else.
