How Renicol Eye Drop works

Renicol 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.
