Ophthalmologists warn that if you have suffered from conjunctivitis you’d better go to the hospital to have your eyes examined and cure them accordingly. Don’t abuse eyeointment so that to avoid aggravating your disease and delaying its treatment. Instead, you should use the eyeointment correctly under the guidance of your doctor. Here I want to introduce you four notices of using eyeointment.
1. Keep your eyes clean. As there are many secretions in your eyes when you are suffering cute conjunctivitis, it is insufficient to cure it only by relying on drug treatment. So it is of great importance to usually take good care of your eyes and keep them clean. You can wash your eyes with normal saline or 3% boric solution before using your eyeointment, thus getting the best effect.
2. At the early period of suffering conjunctivitis, it is prohibited to use hormone eyeointment. On the contrary, cold compress should be better, which is helpful for detumescence. Don’t use hormone eyeointment until your inflammation is controlled.
3. Use Moroxydine Hydrochloride Eye Drops and all kinds of anti-virus eye drops if you are suffering viral conjunctivitis.
4. Protect your eyes from light and heat and don’t read or watch TV lying on the bed. Moreover, wear a pair of sunglasses to avoid the simulation of sunglight, wind, dirt, etc. If you find your conjunctivitis not getting better or you have got general malaise after accepting the treatment at home for a long time, this may mean you will get some complications. In such case, you should go to see doctor immediately. (Click here to learn more about conjunctivitis.)
