About FLURGAT EYE DROPS 5ML

FLURGAT EYE DROPS 5ML is an ophthalmic (for eye use) medication primarily used to treat bacterial eye infections. A bacterial eye infection occurs when bacteria invade any part of the eyeball or its surrounding tissues, including the cornea (clear front surface of the eye) and the conjunctiva (thin membrane lining the outer eye and inner eyelids). Symptoms of a bacterial eye infection include red eyes, pain, swelling of eyes, watery eyes, itching, and blurry vision.

FLURGAT EYE DROPS 5ML contains two medicines, namely: Flurbiprofen and Gatifloxacin. Flurbiprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It prevents the formation of chemical messengers called 'prostaglandins' that cause pain, redness, and swelling at the injured or damaged site. Gatifloxacin is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic that kills bacteria (bactericidal action) by preventing the synthesis of enzymes essential for the growth and survival of the bacterial cell.

Your doctor will advise on how often you take FLURGAT EYE DROPS 5ML based on your medical condition. Some common side effects of FLURGAT EYE DROPS 5ML include blurred vision, burning/stinging sensation in the eye, and eye discomfort. These side effects do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. 

Please do not use FLURGAT EYE DROPS 5ML without consulting your doctor if you have any heart, liver or kidney diseases and allergic reactions to FLURGAT EYE DROPS 5ML and its components. Inform your doctor if you have aspirin-sensitive asthma, growths in the nose (nasal polyps), bleeding or clotting issues, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and other eye problems. Avoid driving or operating machines since the administration of FLURGAT EYE DROPS 5ML cause temporary blurred vision after using. If you are pregnant or a breastfeeding mother, please consult your doctor before using FLURGAT EYE DROPS 5ML.
