Azyter is a branded antibacterial medication. It’s predominantly used to treat bacterial eye infections such as conjunctivitis. It should be administered directly into your eye three times a day.
Eye infections are an unpleasant experience. They’re caused by a bacterial or viral infection that has had direct contact with the eye. The most common eye infection is conjunctivitis. Its symptoms commonly include inflammation of the eye, the appearance of pus or mucus, a burning sensation in your eye or your eye having a red and puffy appearance.
The active ingredient in Azyter eye drops (azithromycin) targets and attacks the bacteria responsible for your eye infection. Azithromycin is an antibiotic that stops bacteria from creating an essential protein that it needs to multiply.
Without this protein, the bacteria start to weaken and become unstable, and your body’s immune system is able to kill them off. Once the bacteria is taken care of by your body’s defences, your symptoms should start to improve.
There is only one dose of Azyter available as an eye drop: 15mg/g. You can get different doses of Azyter, but these come as tablets. Eye drops are recommended over tablets for eye infections. So if you’ve got conjunctivitis or a similar infection, the 15mg/g dose is the one that you can expect to receive.
Regardless of which dose you are prescribed, it’s important that you take your treatment as instructed by our clinician. The eye drops should only need to be taken for three days, but the effects of the treatment will continue for a little while after.

Like with all treatments, you should always follow the instructions that are given to you by the prescriber. If you have any questions or concerns, you can sign in to your account and send our clinician a message. Or you can refer to the package information leaflet that comes with your medication.
The recommended way to take Azyter is by following the below steps:
The course lasts for three days and you should feel a positive effect within this time. It will still continue to work for a little while after the course is over, so some of the positive effects might not show until after the treatment is finished. Evidence is based on a clinical study that showed 89% of patients who used Azyter to treat their eye infections made a full recovery in three days.
If you forget to take a dose of Azyter, it’s important that you don’t take twice the amount to make up for a missed dose. If you take too much of this treatment then we recommend contacting our clinician for further advice.
