What is Brolene Eye Drops?
Brolene Eye Drops is a treatment that is intended to provide relief for the effects of eye conditions such as conjunctivitis. The active ingredient of this eye drop treatment is propamidine, which is a disinfectant and antifungal ingredient. This works by stopping bacteria growing on and around the eyes, and allows for the body to grow a resistance to the infection.
What causes conjunctivitis?
Conjunctivitis is a condition that affects the eyes and is caused either by an infection or an allergy. The symptoms of conjunctivitis include:
- Bloodshot eyes
- A burning or gritty feeling
- Pus that sticks to eyelashes
- Watery eyes
Generally speaking, conjunctivitis is a condition that will go away on its own, but it is contagious in a lot of instances and so treating it as soon as possible is recommended.
