How to use Gartic 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 Gartic Eye Drop works

Gartic Eye Drop is a combination of two medicines: Betamethasone and Gentamicin. Betamethasone is a steroid which blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the eye red, swollen and itchy. Gentamicin is an antibiotic. It stops bacterial growth in the eye by preventing the synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions.

Expert Advice

  • Gartic Eye Drop is used for the treatment of bacterial skin infections.
  • It should be applied to the affected areas as a thin film, two or three times daily, or as advised by your doctor.
  • Do not use it more often or for longer than advised by your doctor. 
  • Do not apply it to broken skin and avoid getting it in your eyes, nose or mouth. 
  • Do not cover the area being treated with airtight dressings such as bandages unless directed by a doctor, as this may increase the risk of side effects.

Dr. Vishal Arora

If the infection is not going then transplant will be an option. But the way you have described it, it may not be infection but something else. There will always be a difference between what patient describes to what has been told by the doctor. Please consult your doctor. Cannot advise without examination
