Gentamicin eye drops pharmacological information

Gentamicin eye drops are prescribed for bacterial infections of the eyes or eyelids. These eye drops are used to kill the bacteria that cause eye infections. Conjunctivitis is the most common form of eye infection; In conjunctivitis, the eye becomes inflamed and the person feels itchy in the eye. In this disease, watery discharge from the eyes is more than usual. The whites of the eyes may become red and the eyelids may become swollen. At the beginning of the disease, only one eye may be involved, but later, the infection spreads to both eyes.

In most cases, infectious conjunctivitis goes away within a few days without treatment. For the treatment of more severe infections, an antibiotic such as gentamicin eye drops may be helpful. Gentamicin eye drops are also prescribed for minor eye injuries, such as scratches and corneal abrasions; In such cases, eye drops are prescribed to prevent infection and speed up the healing of the eye.
