Table of contents:

Ciloxan Ophthalmic Solution is a medication used for the treatment of certain types of eye infections caused by susceptible strains of bacteria. It contains ciprofloxacin, a fluoroquinolone antibiotic that works by stopping the growth of bacteria. It works by stopping the growth and spread of bacteria that cause infections in the eye.

When applied as directed by your doctor, Ciloxan will penetrate the tissue and reach the site of the infection, where it will work to kill the bacteria causing the infection. By doing so, it helps to relieve symptoms such as inflammation and redness and allows the eye to heal.

Use and Dosage

To use Ciloxan Ophthalmic Solution, follow the dosage instructions provided by your doctor or as indicated on the packaging.

Shake the bottle well before using and tilt your head back slightly. Using one hand, pull down your lower eyelid to create a small pocket. Hold the dropper tip directly over your eye and gently squeeze the bottle to instill the prescribed number of drops into your eye. Close your eye for a few minutes to allow the medication to spread evenly. Do not touch the tip of the dropper to any surface to avoid contamination. Repeat this process for your other eye if needed.

If you are unsure of the proper usage, please consult your doctor or pharmacist for further instructions.
