Ciloxan eye drops contain the active ingredient ciprofloxacin (antibiotic), which acts against a number of bacteria that can cause eye infections. This medicine is intended for the treatment of conjunctivitis, blepharitis and corneal ulcers of bacterial origin and is only used on medical prescription.

What Does Ciloxan Contain?

Ciloxan Eye Drop

1 ml of eye drops contains: ciprofloxacin hydrochloride 3.5 mg (= 3 mg ciprofloxacin base), benzalkonium chloride (preservative), excipients for the manufacture of eye drops.

Presentation: 5 ml dropper bottle.


The doctor determines the dosage. In general, Ciloxan eye drops are dosed as follows:

In case of bacterial conjunctivitis or blepharitis

  • Adults and children from 1 year of age:
  • 1st to 2nd day: Instil 1 to 2 drops into the affected eye every 2 hours during the day.

Then instil 1 to 2 drops into the affected eye every 4 hours until the bacterial inflammation has disappeared.

In the case of corneal ulcers

Adults and children from 1 year of age.

Ciloxan should be applied as follows, also at night:

  • 1st day: Instil into the affected eye 2 drops every 15 minutes for the first 6 hours, then 2 drops every 30 minutes.
  • 2nd day: 2 drops every hour in the affected eye.
  • Day 3-14: 2 drops every 4 hours in the affected eye.

Antibiotic treatment must not be stopped without your doctor's agreement. Symptoms of eye disease may disappear before the infection is completely cured. If treatment is stopped too soon, there is a risk of the infection returning.

Do not change the dosage prescribed for you without medical authorisation. Consult your doctor or pharmacist if you think the drug is too weak or too strong.

The following side effects may occur when using Ciloxan eye drops:

White precipitates have frequently been observed in the eyes of patients with corneal ulcers undergoing treatment with Ciloxan. However, these precipitates disappear with continued treatment, and do not require interruption. They have no negative influence on the clinical course of the corneal ulcer or on visual acuity. Please inform your doctor if you experience these or any other symptoms.

The active ingredients contained in ophthalmic preparations can enter the bloodstream. As a result, undesirable effects may appear in areas of the body other than the eye (e.g. occasional nausea and, in very rare cases, allergic-type effects such as cyanosis, respiratory problems, tendonitis, oedema and/or skin redness). If you notice these symptoms or any other effects that may be related to the use of Ciloxan eye drops, consult your doctor or pharmacist immediately.

If you notice any other side effects, please tell your doctor or pharmacist.


Consult your doctor immediately if the treated eye irritations worsen within 2 to 3 days of starting treatment with Ciloxan eye drops or if you notice any new symptoms.

Treatment with Ciloxan should be stopped at the first sign of tendonitis.

Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are suffering from any other illnesses, are allergic or are already taking other medicines internally or applying them to the eye (even if you are self-medicating)!

This medicine may affect reactions, driving ability and the ability to use tools or machines!

If you experience blurred vision after instilling this medicine, avoid driving a vehicle or operating machinery until this condition ceases.

What else do you need to consider?

This medicine has been prescribed for you by your doctor to treat the eye irritations you are currently suffering from. The antibiotic contained in Ciloxan eye drops is not effective against all the micro-organisms that cause eye infections. Incorrect use of the wrong antibiotic or the wrong dose could cause complications. Never use this medicine without a doctor's prescription for the treatment of an illness other than the one you have or for other people. In the event of a new infection occurring at a later date, do not use the eye drops without consulting your doctor again. Ciloxan eye drops are intended for administration to the eye only. Do not swallow this medicine.

Note for contact lens wearers:

Do not wear your contact lenses during treatment with Ciloxan eye drops.

Store the bottle at room temperature (15°-25°C), away from light and heat and out of the reach of children. Do not keep refrigerated. Do not freeze.


When you have instilled too many drops into the affected eye, rinse out the excess eye drops with lukewarm water.

For further information, consult your doctor or pharmacist, who have detailed information for professionals.
