Lomebac Eye Drops
Lomebac (Lomefloxacin) is indicated for bacterial infections, including bacterial conjunctivitis, blepharitis, and blepharo-conjunctivitis which are due to Lomefloxacin susceptible germs. It is also indicated for the treatment of keratitis and corneal ulcer.
Dosage & Administration
Adults and children (above 1 year of age): Instill one drop 2 times daily into the lower conjunctival sac.
At the beginning of treatment, application should be more frequent, apply 5 drops within 20 minutes or 1 drop every hour during 6 -10 hours.
Lomebac eye drops contains benzalkonium chloride as a preservative, which can permeate into soft hydrophilic contact lenses. For this reason soft hydrophilic contact lenses should be taken out before applying Lomebac eye drops, and be replaced after 15 minutes.
Pregnancy & Lactation
Animal studies have revealed that after systemic use, Lomefloxacin passes the placental barrier and is also excreted in maternal milk. Clinical studies on the use of Lomefloxacin eye drops during human pregnancy or lactation are not available. The drug therefore, should only be used when the potential benefit to the pregnant/lactating woman outweighs the potential risk to the fetus or the infant.
