Overview

Introduction

Calobiotic Eye Drop is a medicine used to treat eye infection. It works by killing and inhibiting the growth of microorganisms in the eyes. This relieves discomfort, itching, irritation, and pain in the eyes.

Calobiotic Eye Drop is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Wash your hands before and after applying the medicine. Hold the dropper close to the eye without touching it. Gently squeeze the dropper and place the medicine inside the lower eyelid. Wipe off extra liquid. Use it regularly to get the most benefit from it. Do not use more than you need, it will not clear your condition faster and may only increase the risk of side effects.

The medicine is generally well-tolerated with little or no side effects. However, it may cause irritation and burning sensation immediately following application. These are temporary and usually subside on their own. Inform your doctor if they persist for a longer duration. Do not wear contact lenses while using it. You should not use the open bottle for more than 4 weeks.

It is not likely that other medicines you take by mouth or injection will affect the way this medicine works, but let your doctor know of the other medicines you are using. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should first consult their doctors before using the medicine.

How to use Calobiotic Eye Drop

This medicine is for external use only. Take it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Hold the dropper close to the eye without touching it. Gently squeeze the dropper and place the medicine inside the lower eyelid. Wipe off extra liquid.

How Calobiotic Eye Drop works

Calobiotic Eye Drop is a combination of four medicines: Lidocaine/Lignocaine, Beclometasone, Clotrimazole and Chloramphenicol, which treats eye infections. Lidocaine/Lignocaine is a local anesthetic which works by blocking pain signals from the nerves to brain thereby decreasing pain sensation. Beclometasone is a steroid medicine. It blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the eye red, swollen and itchy. Clotrimazole is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi by preventing them from forming their own protective covering. Chloramphenicol is an antibiotic. It stops bacterial growth by preventing synthesis of essential proteins.
