If you have a corneal ulcer (a type of eye infection), your healthcare provider may recommend a drug called Iquix® (levofloxacin ophthalmic solution). The medicine comes in the form of an eye drop that is applied to the affected eye several times a day for at least four days. The course of treatment your healthcare provider recommends will depend primarily on the severity of your infection.
Prior to beginning treatment with Iquix, inform your healthcare provider if you wear contact lenses, as you will not be able to wear your lenses while using this medicine. Also, tell your healthcare provider about any other medications you are taking, including nonprescription products and vitamins. Interactions are unlikely; however, they cannot be entirely ruled out.
