Occucom Eye Drop


Overview

Introduction

Occucom Eye Drop is a combination of two medicines. It is used in treating infection of the eyes. It relieves pain, itching, discomfort, and irritation caused by infection. It also stops the growth of the infection causing microorganisms.

Occucom Eye Drop is strictly advised to be used only in the eyes. Use it in the prescribed dose and duration. Apply it only on the affected eyes. You must wash your hand before administering the medicine. Do not use it more than the recommended dose. The medicine should not be stopped suddenly without doctor's consultation.

It is generally safe, but it may sometimes cause irritation, tingling sensation, discomfort and pain in the eyes. These effects are mild and go away in some time. However, if these effects persist, you should consult the doctor immediately.

How Occucom Eye Drop works

Occucom Eye Drop is a combination of two medicines: Moxifloxacin and Dexamethasone.

Dexamethasone is a steroid which blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the eye red, swollen and itchy.

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
