In clinical studies, the most commonly reported side effect of Ocuflox was a short-term burning or discomfort in the eye. However, most people are able to use these eye drops without any problems. If you develop any serious side effects while using this medication, such as severe eye redness or pain that gets worse, tell your healthcare provider right away.

An Introduction to Ocuflox Side Effects

Just like any medicine, Ocuflox® (ofloxacin ophthalmic solution) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well.
 
If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
 
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Ocuflox. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
 

Common Side Effects of Ocuflox

Ocuflox has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in people given Ocuflox were carefully documented. Because very little of this medication is absorbed into the body, most of the adverse reactions are localized to the eye.
 
The most commonly reported Ocuflox side effect was a short-term burning or discomfort in the eye. Other problems included:
 
  • Eye stinging
  • Eye itching
  • Eye redness
  • Inflammation of the eye or surrounding area
  • Feeling like something is in the eye
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Blurred vision
  • Tearing
  • Dry eyes
  • Eye pain.
