Tobrex antibiotic (for the eyes) is used to treat bacterial infections of the eyes.
Tobrex will not treat a viral or fungal infection of the eye.
To apply the ointment:
Tilt your head back slightly and pull down your lower eyelid to create a small pocket. Hold the ointment tube with the tip pointing toward this pocket. Look up and away from the tip.
Squeeze out a ribbon of ointment into the lower eyelid pocket without touching the tip of the tube to your eye. Blink your eye gently and then keep it closed for 1 or 2 minutes.
Use a tissue to wipe excess ointment from your eyelashes.
After opening your eyes, you may have blurred vision for a short time. Avoid driving or doing anything that requires you to be able to see clearly.
Do not touch the tip of the eye dropper or ointment tube, and do not place it directly on your eye. A contaminated dropper or tube tip can infect your eye, which could lead to serious vision problems.
