A popular and commonly used antibiotic ointment for the eye. This ointment is commonly used for mild to moderate infections and cases of blepharitis (chronic eyelid inflammation).  This ointment comes in tubes and is available as an inexpensive generic. This ointment can be rubbed into the eyelashes at night or squeezed into the eye itself as it is an excellent rewetting ointment in its own right.
