Eyes Home > Ciloxan Eye Drop Information

If you have bacterial conjunctivitis ("pink eye") or a corneal ulcer, your healthcare provider may recommend Ciloxan® (ciprofloxacin ophthalmic). This prescription medication comes in the form of an eye drop and eye ointment, and is used several times a day.
In most cases, people tolerate this medication well. However, possible side effects can include eye burning, redness, and itching. Reactions to this medicine tend to be minor and are typically easy to treat.
Before using the ointment or eye drops, make sure to review the safety information for Ciloxan with your healthcare provider. This drug may not be suitable for everyone, so make sure your healthcare provider is aware if you have any other medical conditions (including any allergies) or if you are taking any other types of medicine.
