Eye Care Medications
Doctors prescribe eye medications to treat allergies, bacterial, viral and fungal infections, localized pain, dry eye, glaucoma, and many other conditions. Pharmacists mix customized eye drops, gels, ointments, and injection solutions for these problems.
Sterile compounding methods play an important role in preventing eye-related infections. Compounding is the right way to medicate your eye condition when:
- Retail or prescription medications contain preservatives that make you sensitive or allergic.
- The FDA-approved product you usually use is on a long-term back order or is discontinued by the manufacturer.
Sterile compounding enables pharmacists to dispense precise doses of eye medicine conveniently and accurately with minimal side effects and risk of infection.
