If they are reactive positively to the medication, meaning if the infection goes down. If the medication is not helping with the infection or even worse, the infection has worsened, you should consult a doctor urgently.

How should I take Chloramphenicol Eye Ointment? 

To use the Chloramphenicol eye ointment, you should wash your hands first. The best to avoid any type of contamination is that you should not touch the tube tip or even let it touch your eyeball. You will have to tilt your head back, look up, and very gently pull down your lower eyelid, doing so you will make a pocket with your lower eyelid. After this, you will place a 1-centimetre strip of the ointment into the little pocket. Now that you've done this, gently close your eye and begin to roll your eyeball to spread around the Chloramphenicol ointment. Do not rub your eye and try not yo blink, as doing this will might negatively affect the process of the medication.

If you wear contact lenses, do not wear them under any circumstance while applying the medication, and when you do put them back on, thoroughly sterilise them as not doing so may lead to further infection. If this does happen, you should consult your doctor.

You should apply this medication every 3-4 hours every day, as soon as your symptoms improve, you should reduce your usage until the symptoms disappear. If you are using any other eye medication, you should wait at least 10 minutes before applying said medication. Use this medication regularly if you want the best results, if you wish to help to remember, use it at the same times each day and don't stop taking the medication until the symptoms are entirely gone, as stopping may allow the infection to return.

How does Chloramphenicol Eye Ointment work? 


The Chloramphenicol eye ointment works its wonders against eye infections with its prime ingredient, that being chloramphenicol. This excellent ingredient is a beneficial antibiotic that works by helping to kill the bacteria which are causing the infection. Because the medication is an ointment, it can be placed directly onto your eyeball, albeit very carefully. This allows the eye and the medication to synergise and over some time of being consistent and responsible with the ointment, your infection should be gone before you know it.

How long do I take Chloramphenocil Eye Ointment? 


This entirely depends on how one's body is responding to the medication, whether the drug is taken responsibly, the severity of the infection, whether the eye infection is entirely bacterial or not as multiple eye infections have nothing to do with bacteria.

What are the side effects of Chloramphenicol eye ointment? 

Like every medicine, Chloramphenicol eye ointment can cause side effects. However, not everybody will see them or experience them, such as slight eye irritation or blurry vision when you have just applied the ointment. Since this is an antibiotic, the results are not guaranteed, and thusly, bacteria or fungi that are not killed during the application period might take over the initial infection. If this happens, you should consult a doctor

The rare side effects are breathing problems, fever, swelling your face, lips or tongue and rash with swelling of the skin, if any of these side effects do happen, it is advisable to consult your doctor.
