This is allergy. What you can do is use ciplox D eye drop 4times a day.This is not to be used beyond about one week If needed you can have a anti allergy tablets like cetrazine one daily at bed time for 3 to 4 days as a addition. You will be relieved in about 3days time.

Brief Answer:
Ciplox D is different

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Good of you to get back to me.

Collocation D has a brown band instead of blue in Ciplox and it is different. That has to be used for not more than 1 week. Please get a new bottle.
