Chloramphenicol belongs to a group of medicines called antibiotics, which are used for infections caused by bacteria.

There may also be a sticky discharge which can make the eye difficult to open in the morning, and the eye may feel 'gritty' or irritated.

  • A course of treatment lasts 5 days
  • Apply to each affected eye 3 to 4 times a day; about every 4-6 hours
