Introduction

Dexoren Eye Drop is an antibiotic that fights bacteria. It is used to treat infections of the eye caused by bacteria. It works by killing the bacteria that cause these problems.

Dexoren Eye Drop helps to improve your symptoms and cure the underlying infection. Follow your doctor’s instructions precisely for administering this medicine in the eye. It should be used regularly at evenly spaced time intervals as prescribed by your doctor. Do not skip any doses and finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. Stopping the medicine too early may lead to the infection returning or worsening.

It is effective in killing many types of bacteria. However, it will not work for other types of eye infections (e.g.viral) and therefore, should only be used if prescribed by your doctor. Unnecessary use of any antibiotic can lead to a decrease in its effectiveness in the future.

Commonly seen side effects seen with this medicine include temporary stinging in eyes and blurred vision after administration. Consult your doctor if these side effects persist or if your condition worsens. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should consult their doctor before using it. Contact lenses should not be worn while you are using this medicine or while you have the bacterial eye infection. This medicine should not be used for longer than five days without consulting your doctor.

How Dexoren Eye Drop works

Dexoren Eye Drop is an antibiotic which stops the growth of bacteria that cause eye infections. It does so by preventing synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. This does not directly kill the bacteria, but prevents them from increasing in numbers, and eventually clears up the eye infection.
