Golden Eye Drops information

  • What are Golden Eye Drops and what are they used for?

    Golden Eye Drops Solution contain the antiseptic ingredient Propamidine Isetionate (0.1%) making these drops an easy yet effective way to treat minor eye infections and irritations such as conjunctivitis, styes and blepharitis. They can also be used to relieve unpleasant eye symptoms such as redness, soreness and a feeling of grittiness.

    Simply put one-to-two drops into the affected eye(s), four times daily to soothe common complaints such as sticky eyes and conjunctivitis. Most people will notice an improvement to the condition of their eye within 2 days. Suitable for use by both adults and children.

    How do Golden Eye Drops work?

    GoldenEye 0.1% w/v Eye Drops Solution contain the active ingredient propamidine, an antibacterial agent. Propamidine works to tackle eye infections by stopping bacteria from growing and multiplying. Any remaining bacteria die or are killed by the body’s immune system.

    • Golden eye drops is a topical preparation containing an antibacterial agent. Golden Eye is designed to treat minor eye infections, such as conjunctivitis, blepharitis, and styes. These conditions can present with symptoms of redness, soreness, and a grittiness in the eye.

    • The active ingredient in Golden Eye is propamidine isetionate (0.1%). It also contains sodium chloride, benzalkonium chloride (preservative), sodium hydroxide, hydrochloric acid, and purified water.

    • Golden Eye drops should be used as instructed in the patient information leaflet. If after two days your condition hasn’t improved or has gotten worse, stop using the drops and seek medical advice. However, if the treatment is working, continue to use Golden Eye until the symptoms have fully cleared. If you suffer a recurrence after completing treatment, seek further advice from a healthcare professional.

    • Upon initial application, Golden Eye can cause a mild burning or stinging sensation. Normally, this subsides with further use. However, if Golden Eye continues to cause irritation, you should stop using it and seek medical advice.

      If Golden Eye causes an inflammation of the eye, or if a swelling develops around the eye, then treatment should be stopped and you should see your doctor immediately. Similarly, seek medical attention if a skin rash appears around the eye(s).
