How we ensure accuracy in our content

What is Golden Eye Ointment?

Golden Eye Ointment is an antiseptic with the active ingredient dibrompropamidine isethionate. This works to reduce the inflammation caused by minor eye infections, such as conjunctivitis and blepharitis.


What is conjunctivitis?

Conjunctivitis is the inflammation of the eyes usually caused by an allergic reaction or an infection. It can be contagious in some cases. Conjunctivitis affects both eyes and makes them:

  • Red or bloodshot
  • Burn or make them feel gritty
  • Itchy
  • Watery
  • Produce pus that sticks to eyelashes

If you end up with impaired vision or an increased sensitivity to light, then contact your doctor as it can be a sign of a more serious problem. 


Who is this ointment suitable for?

It is suitable for any adult and child. However, it is recommended that you consult your doctor if the child is under 3 years of age and the condition is more than minor. You should not use Golden Eye Ointment if you are known to have an allergy to the active ingredient dibrompropamidine isethionate. The other ingredients contained are:

  • Liquid paraffin
  • Dispersed polyethene in mineral oil

You should also not wear content lenses while using this eye treatment.


How do I use Golden Eye Ointment?

You apply the ointment inside the lower eyelid and close your eye before wiping away any excess ointment. Do this once a day. If your condition doesn’t improve after two days, stop using it and contact your doctor or pharmacist.


Are there any side effects?

Side effects are rare but can still happen. Most common side effects include:

  • Mild stinging or burning
  • Irritation
  • Itchiness
  • Skin rash or inflammation

If you have a side effect for a long period of time or a more serious side effect, see your doctor immediately.

Excellent product.
The ointment appears to have soothed my husband's eye.
Excellent product
Lynda jacques,
This is really good eye ointment.
Winchester customer,
Great for treatment of a sty. Took 3 days to clear it up completely. Usual hot compress had been tried for a week beforehand without success.
