Table of contents:

Ciloxan Eye Ointment is a medication used for treating eye infections caused by bacteria. It contains ciprofloxacin, which is a type of antibiotic belonging to the class of drugs called quinolones. The ointment works by stopping the growth of the bacteria that cause the infection. It should not be used for viral or fungal infections.

Use and Dosage

Ciloxan Eye Ointment is available only with a doctor's prescription and should be used as directed. To apply Ciloxan Eye Ointment, begin by washing your hands thoroughly. To prevent contamination, make sure to avoid touching the tip of the tube or letting it touch your eye.

Tilt your head back and pull down your lower eyelid to form a pocket. Squeeze a 1/2-inch (1.5 centimeters) strip of the ointment into the pocket by gently squeezing the tube and be careful to not touch your eye with the tube tip. Close your eyes gently and let the ointment spread evenly over your eye's surface. Roll your eyeball in all directions to further distribute the medication. Avoid blinking or rubbing your eye. Repeat these steps for your other eye if directed by your doctor. Wipe the tip of the tube with a clean tissue to remove any excess medication and store it properly.

If you are using other eye medications, wait at least 5 minutes before applying Ciloxan Eye Ointment. Continue using the Ointment for the full duration of your treatment, even if your symptoms improve before then, to ensure that the infection clears up completely.
