How Obpex Eye Drop works

Obpex Eye Drop is a combination of four medicines: Lidocaine / Lignocaine, Clotrimazole, Beclometasone and Ofloxacin. Lidocaine / Lignocaine is a local anesthetic which works by blocking pain signals from the nerves to brain to decrease pain sensationin the eye. Clotrimazole is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi while Ofloxacin is an antibiotic that prevents bacterial cells from dividing and repairing. This treats your eye infection. Beclometasone is a steroid. It blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the eye red, swollen and itchy.
