Ketogate Eye Drop

Prescription Required

Overview

Introduction

Ketogate Eye Drop is a combination medicine used in the treatment of post-operative eye pain and inflammation. It works by killing microorganisms that cause the infection. It also blocks the release of certain chemical messengers that make eye red, swollen, and itchy.

Ketogate Eye Drop should be taken in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. You must wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water to avoid contamination. Never use the medicine if the seal is broken before you use it for the first time. Wash your hands before using it. Follow the instructions given by your doctor and use it in the dose and duration suggested by the doctor. Please consult your doctor if your symptoms do not get better.

The most common side effects of this medicine include eye irritation, watery eyes, and burning sensation. Make sure you remove contact lenses if you wear them and wait for at least 15 minutes before putting them back. Do not use the medicine if you are pregnant or trying to become pregnant, or if you are breastfeeding.

How to cope with side effects?

  • Coping with Eye irritation
    Try placing a warm or cold pack over your closed eyes. Putting a chilled black tea bag over your eyes may also help. Remove eye and face make-up before going to bed and wash your face and eyes regularly. Rinse your eyelids gently and pat dry with a clean, dry towel. Do not rub your eyes. Raise your head at night to reduce fluid retention. If your condition does not improve, talk to your doctor. There may be medicines available depending on the cause of the inflammation.

How Ketogate Eye Drop works

Ketogate Eye Drop is a combination of two medicines: Gatifloxacin and Ketorolac which treat infections. Gatifloxacin is an antibiotic. It kills bacteria by preventing the bacterial cells from dividing and repairing. Ketorolac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers that cause pain and inflammation (redness and swelling).
