Levofloxacin Ophthalmic Solution Dosage

General Information on Using Levofloxacin Ophthalmic Solution

Some considerations for people using levofloxacin ophthalmic solution include the following:
 
  • Levofloxacin ophthalmic solution comes in the form of an eye drop. It is normally dosed several times a day. Make sure you know your individual instructions for using this medicine.
 
  • Many eye infections can spread easily. To prevent further spread of infection, try not to touch your eye while using this medicine, wash your hands thoroughly before and after use, and avoid touching the tip of the dropper to any surface, including your eyes or hands.
 
  • You should not wear contact lenses while you are using this medicine. Ask your healthcare provider when you may use contacts again.
 
  • This medication should only be used in the eye. Do not take it by mouth or apply it to your skin.
 
  • Make sure to dispose of this medication after you finish treatment. Do not save it for later use.
 
  • You should begin to feel better within a few days of starting treatment. However, this does not mean your infection is gone. It is important that you finish your full course of levofloxacin ophthalmic solution. If you stop this medicine too soon, your infection may not be cured, and antibiotic resistance may develop.
 
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed.
