Indications and contraindications

It is used to treat newborns from the first hours after appearance.


For subconjunctival injections, the drug is not used. Individual intolerance may develop on the drug. Symptoms of an allergic reaction are itching, severe irritation, a burning sensation that does not go away within 15 minutes. In this case, it is necessary to notify the attending physician, they do not carry out replacement on their own.

Side effects and overdose

There are no data on overdose with Bactavit, the effect on the body during pregnancy and breastfeeding has not been studied, therefore the drug is prescribed only when the benefits to the mother outweigh the possible harm to the developing organism. Short-term irritation, lacrimation, photophobia, itching and rashes on the eyelids that disappear within 10 minutes after administration are not a reason for stopping treatment.

Applications and dosage

Before starting manipulations, you must wash your hands. The bottle should be held so that the tip does not touch the sclera. Newborns are laid on their backs, slightly turning their heads to the side; for adult patients, it is enough to tilt the head.
During treatment:
    infectious inflammatory processes in the conjunctival sac 1 drop is administered, the frequency is 2-6 times a day;
    for the prevention of infection in the postoperative period - in the same dosage 3-4 times a day;
    as a preparation before surgery - 1 drop just before manipulations.
The doctor can extend the therapy course for more than 10 days. In children of the first year of life and the elderly with a burdened history, correction of the therapeutic regimen is not required. When applied together with other eye drops, you need to make an interval of 15 minutes so that the solution has time to be absorbed.

Special instructions

To exclude the absorption of Bactavit into the systemic circulation and accelerate the distribution over the surface of the eye, after instillation, it is advisable to make a chiseled massage - it is easy to press the inner corner with your fingertips several times. (Children are massaged by parents).
People who wear contact lenses are advised to remove them before injecting the solution. The drug does not change the color of contact lenses (including soft hydrophilic ones), but they can increase side effects and provoke the development of an allergic reaction. In addition, it is not advisable to wear lenses in case of infectious inflammatory processes.
After the eyes drip, the gaze is momentarily clouded. If you have to work with equipment or drive a car, you need to wait 15 minutes after manipulations until vision is fully restored.
If the bottle was kept in the refrigerator after opening before injecting the solution, it should be heated in the palm of your hand to body temperature. When sediment falls, you need to purchase a new vial.
You can not self-medicate. If the inflammation is caused by pathogens that are resistant to picloxidine, the condition will only get worse. The recommended dosage should not be violated - the likelihood of developing negative symptoms increases, because of which the treatment will have to be stopped.

Shafieva R.S., ophthalmologist
“I recommend it for surgical preparation, for relief of complications after surgical interventions. There were no complaints about side effects. "
Ivanov V.I., pediatrician
“I am not an ophthalmologist, but I prescribe Bactavit. For example, recently they brought in a child who injured his eye. Redness and mucous discharge disappeared one day after application. "
The patient is left with both positive and negative reviews:
Renata, 22 years old
“After being discharged from the hospital, the child's eyes began to turn sour. First I washed it with Chlorhexidine, Furacillin - nothing helped. Already tuned in for the operation. The doctor prescribed Bactavit, and after 2 days it got better, and after 4 days there was no need to drip ”.
Olga, 32 years old
“My son, 10 years old, brought something nasty to my eyes. After 2 days, in the morning, the eyelashes clumped together with pus. She took me to the doctor and prescribed expensive drops of Bactavit. The inflammation passed on the 5th day, and the bubble had to be thrown out. Are there really no cheaper drugs? "
Tatyana Ivanovna, 56 years old
“The grandson was diagnosed with dacryocystitis, there was no more room for medicines on the shelf. I persuaded my daughter-in-law to visit my optometrist, and he prescribed Bactavit. Probing was avoided. It is better to buy one expensive product than many cheap ones that do not help. But I didn't have to throw out the bottle - I had to treat my conjunctivitis. "
