    What are Ciprofloxacin Eye Drops prescribed for?

    Ciprofloxacin Eye Drops are given to treat eye infections. Eye Drops belong to a group of medicines called quinolone antibiotics. Eye Drops work by stopping bacteria from growing. These drops can only help with bacterial eye infections, not other kinds. Using antibiotics when you don't need them can make them less effective over time.

    Ciprofloxacin Eye Drops (Ciloxan) Information

    Use of Ciprofloxacin Eye Drops

    Wash your hands: Before using the eye drops, make sure your hands are clean. This helps prevent any dirt or germs from getting into your eyes.

    Avoid contamination: Be careful not to touch the tip of the dropper or let it touch your eye or anything else. This can keep the medicine clean and safe.

    No contact lenses: If you wear contact lenses, don't use them while using these eye drops. If you need to wear them, follow the instructions for cleaning them properly and talk to your doctor first.

    Applying the drops: Tilt your head back, look up, and gently pull down your lower eyelid to create a little pocket. Hold the dropper right above your eye and put one drop into it. Then, look down and close your eyes for 1 to 2 minutes.

    Put a finger at the corner of your eye near your nose and apply gentle pressure. This helps the medicine stay in your eye. Try not to blink or rub your eyes. If you need more drops, repeat these steps for your other eye.

    Store at room temperature when not in use.

    Other eye medications: Wait at least 5 minutes between uses of different drops. Use the eye drops before the ointments so they can work better.

    Use regularly: Use this medication as your doctor or pharmacist instructed, even if your eye feels better, before you finish all the medicine. If you stop too soon, the infection might come back.

    Don't rinse the dropper: After using the drops, don't wash the dropper. Just put the cap back on it.

    Talk to your doctor: If your condition doesn't improve or gets worse, tell your doctor. They can provide medical attention.
