Tobradex Eye Ointment is an ophthalmic ointment made up of two different drugs; a corticosteroid called dexamethasone; and an aminoglycoside antibiotic called tobramycin. We carry the brand choice Tobradex Eye Ointment in 0.30%/0.1%!

Tobradex Eye Ointment (tobramycin/dexamethasone) is used to treat and/or prevent eye inflammation caused by uveitis, eye injury, radiation, chemical burns, or other conditions. It is used when there is risk of bacterial infection, which is a factor of each previously listed condition (like eye injury or chemical burns). It will not help prevent or treat fungal or viral infections, only bacterial infections.

Tobradex Eye Ointment (tobramycin/dexamethasone) is effective at treating and preventing eye inflammation (caused by bacteria) because the antibiotic agent is able to stop the growth of the bacteria while the steroid is able to reduce the swelling (inflammation). This not only reduces inflammation, but also allows the immune system to work more efficiently.
