Tobrasone Eye Drop


Overview

Introduction

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

Tobrasone Eye Drop is strictly advised to use only in the eyes. Use it in the dose and duration advised by your doctor. Apply it only on the affected eye. 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 sometime but if they stay for a long duration, you should consult the doctor immediately.

How to use Tobrasone Eye Drop

How Tobrasone Eye Drop works

Tobrasone Eye Drop is a combination of two medicines: Tobramycin and Fluorometholone. Tobramycin is an antibiotic. It stops bacterial growth in the eye by preventing the synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. Fluorometholone is a steroid which blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the eye red, swollen and itchy.

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
