Azyter is a branded antibiotic treatment manufactured by Thea, containing the active ingredient azithromycin dihydrate. Azyter eye drops are taken twice a day and are used to combat a type of eye infection called conjunctivitis.
- Fast-acting three day course
- Widely prescribed antibiotic
- Treats both bacterial and trachoma conjunctivitis
Conjunctivitis occurs as a result of an inflamed conjunctiva (the thin layer of cells covering the front of the eyes). It is caused by numerous factors including infection, allergy or irritation. However, it is most commonly caused by bacteria or a virus, much like the ones found in the common cold.
Often referred to as ‘red eye’, conjunctivitis is identified by the whites of the eyes looking red, pink or inflamed. The inflammation can encourage the eye’s glands to water excessively and even produce pus or mucus. You may feel as though you have grit in your eyes or a burning sensation. On occasion you may experience a sticky substance along the lash line, usually in the morning, or an enlarged lymph node near to the ear. One eye initially presents symptoms before the infection transfers to the other.
Eye infections can affect people of both genders and all ages, although some people are more susceptible to infection than others. For instance, children may be more prone, due to frequently coming into contact with the infection at school; as might the elderly due to their weaker immune system. People with diabetes, blepharitis, those who have had a recent upper respiratory tract infection or who are taking corticosteroids may also be more likely to get conjunctivitis. As the infection can be passed on through close contact with other people, a good level of hygiene is important. You should remember to wash your hands at regular intervals and avoid sharing towels and pillows.
Azyter eye drops can be prescribed by Treated.com to help clear up symptoms. They work by attacking the bacteria responsible for the spread of the infection. Antibiotics prevent the bacteria from creating an essential protein they need to multiply. Without the protein the bacteria become unstable and the body’s natural defences can overpower them, reducing symptoms and killing off the infection.
We understand that eye infections can be disruptive to your daily activities. Therefore getting the correct treatment quickly can reduce the number of days you experience uncomfortable symptoms. Our GMC-registered doctors are ready to review your case. Once they have established that this treatment is suitable for you, it will be distributed by 24-hour courier the next working day.
