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.

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.

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.
