Brolene Eye Drops reviews
Brolene Eye Drops FAQs
Brolene is an antibacterial eye drop used to treat minor infections affecting the eye or eyelid, such as conjunctivitis and blepharitis. It can also treat acanthamoeba keratitis, a rare infection of the cornea. This is an efficient treatment, as it acts directly on the eye.
The active ingredient in Brolene is an antibacterial medicine called propamidine. It treats infections by preventing further growth of bacteria on and around the eye. Once the infection has stopped spreading, the body’s immune system can more easily target and kill the existing bacteria.
Generally, you will be advised to use one to two drops of Brolene, three or four times per day.
Before using Brolene, wash your hands and clean your eye(s) with a saline solution. Tilt your head backwards, look up, and gently pull down your lower eyelid. Carefully place one to two drops on the inside of your lower eyelid. Close your eyes then use a clean and dry tissue to wipe away any solution remaining on the skin. Remember to replace the cap as soon as you are done.
Do not let the dropper make contact with your eye or with any other surface. This can cause the medicine to become contaminated.
If you have multiple types of eye drop treatment, wait at least five minutes between uses. This will prevent one medicine from diluting and washing away another.
Contact lenses can aggravate an eye condition, causing symptoms to worsen. Wait 24 hours after using Brolene before you use your lenses.
You should begin to notice improvements to your symptoms within two days of using Brolene. Consult your GP if your symptoms persist. Do not use this treatment for more than seven consecutive days unless specifically advised to do so by a doctor.
Dispose of any bottle of Brolene which has been opened for more than four weeks.
Brolene may cause slightly blurred vision. Avoid driving or operating machinery unless your vision is completely clear. Consult your GP if you notice any vision problems while using Brolene.
