Hi Annemarie. Bactroban
ointment is typically meant for the skin in impetigo
and the literature along with the medication states that it should not be used for the eyes. In your case, it was purely accidental and from what you have indicated, the amount that must have entered your eye, if it did at all ,should be too little to be of any concern. You do not have any symptoms at all and most likely will not either. The chemical injury
you sustained a while back will not make your eye more prone to damage so rest assured all is fine. Do remember to wash your hands after using any ointment not meant for ophthalmic use in the future.
