For the treatment of acute bacterial conjunctivitis

Optrex Bacterial Conjunctivitis 1% w/w Eye Ointment is a topical ointment for the eye. It contains an antibiotic called chloramphenicol and is used to treat bacterial infections that affect the outer surface of the eye.

The most common type of infection in this area is called acute bacterial conjunctivitis. When you have acute bacterial conjunctivitis the white part of one or both of your eyes will be red and /or your eyelids will be red or swollen. There will be a sticky discharge, which can make the eye difficult to open in the morning and the eye may feel 'gritty' or 'irritated'.

Ensure your hands are clean and avoid contact with the open end of the tube.

Position the tip of the tube close to the eye. Gently pull the lower eyelid downwards and look up. Apply a strip of ointment approximately 1cm in length to the inside of the eyelid and blink several times to spread the ointment.

The ointment should be applied either at night if eye drops are used during the day, or 3 to 4 times a day if eye ointment is used alone. The pharmacist will advise on the most suitable treatment. Treatment should continue for 5 days even if symptoms improve.
