Brolene 0.1% Eye Drops - 10ml

Description

Brolene Eye Drops are a well-established and trusted solution for addressing various eye infections and conditions. These drops are specifically formulated to provide effective treatment and relief for eye infections caused by bacteria. Common conditions that Brolene Eye Drops can help manage include bacterial conjunctivitis, which is commonly referred to as "pink eye."

The active ingredient in Brolene Eye Drops is Propamidine Isethionate, a broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent that targets and inhibits the growth of bacteria causing eye infections. This medication works by eradicating the underlying bacterial infection, which leads to a reduction in symptoms such as redness, discharge, itching, and discomfort.

Lower Eyelid: With one hand, gently pull down your lower eyelid to create a small pocket.
Apply Drops: Hold the eye drop bottle upside down over your eye and squeeze it to release one or two drops into the pocket created by your lower eyelid. Be cautious not to touch your eye with the dropper tip or any other surface.
