Gentamicin Eye Drops

Gentamicin Eye Drops (Genticyn) offer a type of antibiotic when someone has a form of bacteria that is in one or both of the eyes. It has proven to be very useful against a variety of different microorganisms. It should only be applied to the area in the corner of the eye.

These drops should be used twice a day, about 12 hours a part. It may take up to 3 days of use before someone feels better. In the mean time the eyes may be swollen, red, itchy, and dry. It is important to take the Gentamicin Eye Drops for the duration of the prescription. Otherwise there is the risk that some of the bacteria can be lingering and the problem will intensify again.

The hands should be clean when handling gentamicin ophthalmic solution. The part where the product comes out should never be touched by the hands or against the eye. Doing so risks contamination and it can make eliminating the bacteria very difficult. Individuals need to apply the drops leaning back in one eye at a time.

Apply a few drops of Gentamycin and then close the eye for a couple of minutes. This allows as much of the drops to be absorbed into the eye as possible. The same procedure should be repeated for the second eye as well if it has been affected. Refrain from wearing contact lenses, using harsh soaps, or cosmetics until the time frame for the use of the Gentamicin Eye Drops has passed.

Anyone who is taking other forms of medication needs to disclose them all to the doctor. Include over the counter items, vitamins, and mood enhancements too. Some medications may cause these drops to not work well and that needs to be avoided. Some side effects that may occur include burning in the eyes, dry eyes, and redness.
