Tobramycin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic which kills the bacteria by blocking the production of certain proteins that are required for their growth. Dexamethasone works by decreasing the release of certain substances that cause swelling. It also works by suppressing or partially preventing the effect of the immune system.
Directions for Use
Eye drops: Wash your hands thoroughly with water before and after use. Tilt your head back and pull down the lower eyelid to create a small sac. Take the prescribed amount of dose with the dropper and squeeze out a drop. Close your eyes for about 2 to 3 minutes. Wipe any excess liquid with a tissue. Do not wipe or rinse the dropper tip after use. Place the dropper back on the bottle and tighten the cap.Eye ointment: Eye ointment is also used similarly. Create a pocket pulling the lower eyelid while tilting your head back. Then, squeeze out a prescribed amount of ointment and close your eyes. You may experience blurred vision for some time after opening the eyes. So, rest for a while before doing anything.
