TOBREX EYE OINTMENT (TOBRAMYCIN EYE OINTMENT)

Antibiotic for Bacterial Eye Infections

If your doctor has confirmed that you have conjunctivitis, blepharitis, or keratitis caused by bacteria, you may be recommended to treat with Tobrex Eye Ointment. This is an ophthalmic medication that will only work for bacterial infections so if your doctor is awaiting test results to confirm the cause of your infection, you can use Tobrex Eye Ointment as directed unless told otherwise by your doctor. It’s important to act as quickly as possible to relieve your pain and to reduce the risk of infecting others if the condition is contagious.

How Tobrex Eye Ointment Works

The active ingredient in Tobrex Eye Ointment is Tobramycin, an aminoglycoside antibiotic. When you apply the Tobramycin Eye Ointment, it will render the bacteria unable to produce the proteins they need to form a stable cell membrane where they can grow and multiply. Without the essential proteins, the outer layer of the cell membranes form holes that allow the contents to leak out and other substances to seep in so the bacteria die.

Some of the Bacterial Infections that Tobrex Eye Ointment Treats

Conjunctivitis involves the inflammation of the transparent membrane that covers the whites of your eye and the inside lining of your eyelids. This condition is very contagious so extra care must be taken to avoid infecting the entire family, work place, or classroom. Blepharitis could begin as a bacterial infection caused by your contact lenses, and extends to your eyelids being inflamed as bacteria and oily particles start to coat the margin of your eyelids at the base of your eyelashes. Bacterial keratitis affects your cornea, the clear area that covers the colored part of your eyes. This can develop fast and if ignored, you could risk losing your sight.

Before You Administer Tobrex Eye Ointment

Ask your doctor about any risks with the use of Tobrex Eye Ointment while you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC and Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal products and dietary or vitamin supplements, so your doctor can determine if Tobrex Eye Ointment is right for you.

Important Information When Using Tobrex Eye Ointment

Remove contact lenses before treating the bacterial eye infection with Tobrex Eye Ointment and do not reinsert them until your doctor instructs you that it is safe to do so. Keep Tobrex Eye Ointment, and other meds, out of children’s reach and never share these products with others. Be careful not to touch the end of the tube of Tobramycin to your eye during administration or you may contaminate it. Do not drive or attempt any task that requires clear vision until the medication has been completely absorbed.
