Chloramphenicol Eye Ointment is for eye infections and conjunctivitis. Previously chloramphenicol eye ointment was only available by prescription. With the changes made by the Ministry of Health in reclassifying this medicine, Pharmacists are able to sell this after a thorough consultation. Talk to your pharmacist if you have an eye infection, a stye or conjunctivitis. Chloramphenicol is also available in an Eyedrop form.
