Baxters Bites Heading

Welcome to Baxter’s Bites Week 3 – Eye Infections

Infections of the eye or bacterial conjunctivitis are quite common, particularly in children and the elderly. The eyes usually feel sore and gritty and have a discharge, particularly on waking.

General Advice

  • The pharmacist can recommend antibiotic eye drops for the infection.
  • Use the drops for 5 days, even if the symptoms have improved.
  • The drops should not be used by anyone else and you should not use anyone else’s drops.
  • If your symptoms worsen or do not improve in 48hrs, you should see your Dr.
  • Infective conjunctivitis is contagious, so wash your hands after touching around the eyes
  • Do not share towels or flannels.
