This combination medication is prescribed for the treatment or prevention of eye infections. It combines two active ingredients. Tobramycin falls under the category of aminoglycoside antibiotics, functioning to halt the proliferation of bacteria. Dexamethasone, on the other hand, is classified as a corticosteroid and operates by diminishing inflammation.

Uses and Dosage

While using this medication, refrain from wearing contact lenses. Prior to resuming contact lens use, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for sterilization and seek approval from your doctor.

To apply the eye ointment, start by washing your hands. To prevent contamination, exercise caution to avoid contact between the tip of the tube and your eye. Tilt your head backward, gaze upward, and gently pull down your lower eyelid to create a small pocket. Squeeze the tube gently to release a 1/2 inch (1.3 centimeters) strip of ointment into the pocket. Close your eye and move it in all directions to evenly distribute the medication. Make an effort not to blink and avoid rubbing your eye. If instructed, repeat these steps for the other eye. Afterward, use a clean tissue to wipe any excess medication from the tip of the ointment tube before securely capping it. Administer the medication as frequently as directed by your doctor.

Your prescribed dosage is determined by your medical condition and your response to the treatment.

If you are using a different type of eye medication, such as eye drops or other ointments, wait for at least 5 to 10 minutes before applying additional medications. Prioritize the use of eye drops before eye ointments to facilitate the entry of the drops into your eye.

To derive the maximum benefit from this medication, maintain a regular usage schedule, taking it at the same times each day. Even if your symptoms disappear within a few days, continue using the medication for the entire duration prescribed. Prematurely discontinuing the medication could allow bacteria to persist and potentially lead to a recurrence of the infection.
