Product Information

  • Description

    Ofloxacin is a quinolone antibiotic, which means it inhibits the bacterial DNA replication process, a common treatment for eye infections. When applied topically to the eye, ofloxacin penetrates the cornea and conjunctiva, absorbing into susceptible bacteria. It then interferes with the enzyme DNA gyrase, which is essential in the formation of bacterial DNA loops, a necessary step in DNA replication. This inhibition causes the rupturing of bacterial DNA molecules, leading to the death of the bacteria. Ofloxacin's antimicrobial activity specifically targets gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria and is effective against various bacteria strains associated with ocular infections, such as Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis, and Pseudomona aeruginosa. Ofloxacin's mechanism of action provides relief from symptoms of bacterial eye infections and helps prevent further infections.
