How Sulphachlor Eye Drop works

Sulphachlor Eye Drop is a combination of two antibiotics: Chloramphenicol and Sulphacetamide/Sulfacetamide which treat eye infections. Chloramphenicol stops bacterial growth by inhibiting synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. Sulphacetamide/Sulfacetamide works by preventing the bacteria from producing folic acid, a nutrient required for bacterial multiplication. Together, they treat your infection effectively.

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
