Ophthalmic ofloxacin is a quinolone antibiotic specifically indicated for the treatment of ocular bacterial infections, encompassing conditions such as conjunctivitis (commonly referred to as pink eye) and corneal ulcers. Its mode of action involves targeting and eradicating the bacterial cells responsible for the infection, thereby facilitating the resolution of the ocular condition.

Uses and Dosage

Ophthalmic ofloxacin is formulated as a liquid solution intended for instillation into the eye. Typically, it is recommended to apply the solution to the affected eye(s) at least four times a day.

For optimal results, adhere strictly to the instructions provided on your prescription label. Utilize ofloxacin precisely as directed, avoiding any deviations such as using more or less than prescribed or increasing the frequency of administration beyond the doctor’s recommendation.

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.

Before initiating treatment with this medication, disclose your medical history, particularly if you have experienced any other eye problems.

How long does it take for Floxin to work?

Floxin starts working right away since it is placed right where the infection or ulcer is. If using this medication for pink eye, your symptoms should start to improve in a couple days. Corneal ulcers tend to take longer to heal, and takes most people about 11 days for their ulcers to go away.

Is Floxin a strong antibiotic?

Floxin works well against most but not all types of bacteria that cause eye infections.
