Ciprofloxacin ophthalmic ointment is employed to treat bacterial infections affecting the eye. This medication belongs to a class of antibiotics known as fluoroquinolones and operates by eliminating the bacteria responsible for the infection.

Uses and Dosage

Ophthalmic ciprofloxacin is available as both a solution and an ointment for application to the eyes.

Ciprofloxacin ophthalmic solution is typically used frequently, ranging from once every 15 minutes to once every 4 hours while awake, for a duration of 7 to 14 days or longer.

Ciprofloxacin ophthalmic ointment is usually applied three times a day for 2 days, followed by twice a day for 5 days.

Use ophthalmic ciprofloxacin at consistent times every day. Use ophthalmic ciprofloxacin precisely as directed; avoid using more or less of it or using it more frequently than prescribed by your doctor.

You should anticipate an improvement in your symptoms during the course of treatment. Contact your doctor if your symptoms persist, worsen, or if you experience other eye-related issues during treatment.

Continue using ophthalmic ciprofloxacin until you have completed the prescription, even if you start feeling better. Discontinuing its use prematurely may result in incomplete resolution of the infection, and the bacteria could develop resistance to antibiotics.

To administer the eye drops, the following steps should be followed:

  1. Thoroughly wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Do not allow the dropper tip to touch the eye or any other surface, and ensure that it is kept clean.
  3. Tilt the head back and pull down the lower lid of the eye using the index finger to form a pocket.
  4. Hold the dropper as close to the eye as possible without making contact, and brace the remaining fingers against the face.
  5. Squeeze the dropper gently to instill a single drop in the pocket created by the lower eyelid while looking upwards.
  6. Remove the index finger from the lower eyelid and keep the eye closed for 2-3 minutes while tilting the head down.
  7. Apply gentle pressure to the tear duct using a finger.
  8. Use a tissue to wipe off any excess liquid from the face.
  9. Wash hands to remove any residual medication.
