Ophthalmic antibiotics are a category of medications specifically designed to treat eye infections. These antibiotics target and eliminate bacteria that cause various eye conditions, such as conjunctivitis, keratitis, and blepharitis. Some commonly prescribed ophthalmic antibiotics include moxifloxacin, ofloxacin, ciprofloxacin, gentamicin, chloramphenicol, and Polymyxin-B.

Moxifloxacin, ofloxacin, and ciprofloxacin are fluoroquinolone antibiotics that work by inhibiting the enzymes necessary for bacterial growth and replication. Gentamicin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic that disrupts bacterial protein synthesis, while chloramphenicol and Polymyxin-B work by interfering with bacterial cell wall synthesis.

When using ophthalmic antibiotics, it is crucial to follow the prescribed dosage and duration to ensure effective treatment and to prevent the development of antibiotic resistance. If you experience any adverse reactions or the infection does not improve, it is essential to consult a healthcare professional for further evaluation and alternative treatment options.
