Besix general information

What is Besix used for?

Besix Eye drops 0.6% are a topical antibiotic used to treat external bacterial infections of the eye.  Bacterial conjunctivitis is a bacterial eye infection also known as pink eye, an infection of the conjunctiva, which is the mucous membrane covering the outside of the eye and lining the inside of the eyelids.  Conjunctivitis causes the infected eye and eyelid to become sore, red and inflamed, with a sticky discharge and crust formation on the eyelids that can make the eyes stick together.  Symptoms of eye infection can also include, pain, foreign body sensation (a feeling of something in the eye), gritty sensation, blurred vision, sensitivity to light.  Besix Eye drops 0.6% act directly on the infection in the eye to relieve symptoms and prevent spread of the infection.
