Avoid Ciplox D.

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
Wash your eyes with plain water,put in plain Mosi eye drop 6times a day and ciplox eye ointment at bed time.Read the brochure of ciplox D carefully,it is written that prolong use can cause cataract,glaucoma and fungal infection.So avoid dexamethasone and use moxifloxcin eye drop and ciplox ointment.
Do get back to me in case of any further query please.

Brief Answer:
Conjunctivitis

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
good of you to get back to me.
Ciplox ointment is to be applied in side the eye as you are not putting drops at night so it has a sustained effect..This will also help in the eye lids sticking together also.
