Tobradex eye ointment is an antibiotic medication used to treat bacterial eye infections and related inflammation.

This eye ointment uses a combination of tobramycin, an aminoglycoside antibacterial drug, and dexamethasone, a corticosteroid. Dexamethasone inhibits your inflammatory response to irritants while tobramycin affects the protein synthesis of bacteria to kill cells. These actions allow Tobradex eye ointment to treat infections and the irritation they cause when applied topically.

Dosage and Administration

The dose and administration regimen of Tobradex eye ointment that is prescribed will vary depending on the individual and severity of the infection being treated. Follow all your healthcare provider’s instructions and read packaging labels carefully to ensure the best results during treatment. Do not use Tobradex for longer than prescribed.

  • Wash hands thoroughly before and after use
  • Apply one-half inch of Tobradex ointment up to three or four times each day
  • Rub the container between your hands for a few minutes to warm the ointment
  • Slightly angle back your head and pull down your lower eyelid
  • Apply a thin layer of ointment into your lower eyelid and then close you eye and roll your eyes around in all directions for 1 to 2 minutes
  • Do not use this ointment while wearing contact lenses unless your healthcare provider says so
  • After administration, wait at least 15 minutes before inserting contact lenses
  • Wait at least 10 minutes before applying any other eye medications
  • Do not touch the tube to your eyes or any other surface to avoid infections
  • Store at room temperature away from children and pets
  • Keep the container closed securely

Avoid having the tube dropper touch any surface, including your eyes and hands to minimize the risk of contamination that can cause infections.
