Tobox Eye Drop

Prescription Required

Introduction

Tobox Eye Drop is a combination medicine that is used to treat eye infections. It prevents the growth of the bacteria that cause infection in the eyes.

Tobox Eye Drop is to be used as per the label instructions or as suggested by your doctor. This medicine must be applied only to the affected eye and use it regularly to get the most benefit. The course of the medicine should be completed even if you feel better. You must wash your hands before administering the medicine. Do not use it more than the recommended dose.

Generally, this is a safe medicine. However, it may cause some mild and temporary side effects like eye discomfort, eye irritation, and burning sensation in the eye. Consult your doctor if any side effects persist or worry you. If you experience any allergic reaction (rashes, itching, swelling, shortness of breath, etc.), you must seek immediate medical help.

Before using it, tell your doctor if you have an underlying disease or are taking medicines for any health condition. The medicines that are used externally usually do not get affected by other medicines, however, you should let your doctor know if you are taking any medicines to ensure safety. Ask your doctor for advice if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. While on the treatment, you should not touch or rub your eyes as this may aggravate the infection. Also, you can avoid or reduce screen time and use goggles when you out in the sun or in crowded or public areas. These steps may ensure a faster recovery of the condition.

How Tobox Eye Drop works

Tobox Eye Drop is a combination of two antibiotics: Tobramycin and Moxifloxacin which treat eye infections. Tobramycin is an antibiotic which kills bacteria by preventing the synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. Moxifloxacin kills bacteria by preventing them from reproducing and repairing themselves. Together, they treat your infection effectively.
