Ocuflox is an ophthalmic quinolone antibiotic consisting of ofloxacin. We carry these eye drops in both the brand choice and generic alternative in 0.30%!
Ocuflox is used for treating bacterial infections located in the eye. This medication is also effective at treating ulcers located in the cornea of the eye. Unfortunetly, Ocuflox will only be effective in treating bacterial infections of the eye, not viral or fungal infections. More common bacterial infections may include pink eye (conjunctivitis), eye styes, and bacterial keratitis.
Ocuflox (ofloxacin) is effective in treating bacterial eye infections because of its ability to fight bacteria and prevent further growth, allowing the immune system to fight off the infection more easily.
