Ocuflox Dosage

Ocuflox comes in the form of an eye drop and is typically used several times a day. The right dosing for your situation will depend on the type of eye infection being treated, as well as how severe your symptoms are. Regardless of your dosage, Ocuflox should only be used in the eye. Do not take it by mouth or apply it to the skin.

An Introduction to Dosing With Ocuflox
