About MFX LP Eye Drops 5 ml

MFX LP Eye Drops 5 ml belongs to a group of medications called 'Antibiotics and Corticosteroids' used to treat bacterial eye infections or eye discomfort. It is also used in patients who have undergone eye surgeries. It is effectively used to treat eye inflammation caused by allergies, shingles, severe acne, iritis (inflammation of the coloured part of the eye (iris)), uveitis (inflammation of the middle layer of the eye (uvea)), eye injury, radiation, and chemical burns. 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). MFX LP Eye Drops 5 ml is used to prevent or treat only bacterial eye infections. It does not work against infections caused by viruses and fungi.

MFX LP Eye Drops 5 ml contains two medicines: Moxifloxacin (antibiotic) and Loteprednol (corticosteroid). Moxifloxacin belongs to a class of drugs called fluoroquinolone antibiotics. Moxifloxacin is an antibiotic that helps treat and prevent a wide range of bacterial infections. It kills bacteria (bactericidal action) by preventing the synthesis of enzymes, namely DNA gyrase and Topoisomerase II and IV, which is essential for the growth and survival of the bacterial cell. Loteprednol belongs to the class of corticosteroids. It blocks prostaglandins' production (chemical messengers), making the eye red, swollen, and itchy. Together, MFX LP Eye Drops 5 ml prevents the spread of eye infections caused by bacteria and reduces inflammation and pain.

MFX LP Eye Drops 5 ml is available in the form of an ophthalmic solution (eye drops). Your doctor will advise on how often you take MFX LP Eye Drops 5 ml based on your medical condition.
