These drops will reduce the inflammation as well as treat the infection. Therapeutic indications: Gentamycin eye/ear drops are indicated in adults and children: 1.For the treatment of superficial eye and ear infections caused by organisms sensitive to gentamycin. 2.For prophylaxis against infection in trauma of the eye or ear.
