Yavir Eye Ointment


Overview

Introduction of Yavir Eye Ointment

Yavir Eye Ointment is an antiviral medicine which treats eye infections caused by Herpes simplex virus. It works by preventing the multiplication of the virus on the surface of your eyeball (cornea). This stops the production of new viruses and clears up your eye infection.
