About azithromycin eye drops

Azithromycin eye drops are used to treat bacterial conjunctivitis. Azithromycin helps to kill the bacteria which are causing the infection. Eye infections are a common cause of conjunctivitis. In conjunctivitis, your eye becomes inflamed, feels gritty, and may water more than usual. The white of your eye may look red, and your eyelids can become swollen and stuck together with a discharge when you wake up in the morning. Azithromycin is used to treat eye infections which produce a lot of pus, and also those caused by bacteria called Chlamydia trachomatis.

Azithromycin eye drops can be prescribed for adults and children of all ages.

Before using azithromycin eye drops

Some medicines are not suitable for people with certain conditions, and sometimes a medicine may only be used if extra care is taken. For these reasons, before you start using azithromycin eye drops it is important that your doctor knows:

  • If you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • If you have ever had an allergic reaction to an antibiotic, or to any eye drops.
  • If you are taking or using any other medicines. This includes any medicines you are taking which are available to buy without a prescription, as well as herbal and complementary medicines.

How to use azithromycin eye drops

Wash your hands well before you use the drops.

Open one of the single-dose containers.

Tilt your head back a little and pull the lower lid of your eye downwards to form a pocket.

Hold the container upside down near to your eye. Try not to touch your eye as you do this.

Apply enough pressure to release one drop into your eye.

Close your eye for a minute or two, and press gently on the side of your nose where the corner of your eye meets your nose. This helps to stop the drop from draining away and keeps it in your eye.

Repeat the process in your other eye if you have been told to use the drops in both eyes. (There is sufficient liquid in one container to treat both eyes at the same time.)

Throw away the container, even if there is some liquid left in it. Do not store opened containers to use later.
