In the treatment of superficial ocular infections, a ribbon approximately 1 cm in length of ILOTYCINTM Ophthalmic Ointment should be applied directly to the infected structure up to 6 times daily, depending on the severity of the infection.
For prophylaxis of neonatal gonococcal or chlamydial conjunctivitis, a ribbon of ointment approximately 1 cm in length should be instilled into each lower conjunctival sac. The ointment should not be flushed from the eye following instillation. A new tube should be used for each infant.
For conjunctivitis and other superficial ocular infections: Apply a small amount (approximately one-half inch ribbon) into the conjunctival sac(s) of the affected eye(s) every three to four hours and at bedtime. Dosages may be tapered by increasing the time interval between doses as the condition responds. The ointment may be used as adjunct to the solution. The usual duration of treatment is seven to ten days.
