Effectiveness

How Ocuflox Affects PatientsOfloxacin is an antibiotic that works by stopping bacteria from copying their DNA. It attaches to an enzyme called DNA gyrase, which is needed for bacteria to reproduce, and is 100 times more powerful on bacterial DNA than on human DNA. Ofloxacin is effective against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.
How Ocuflox works in the bodyOfloxacin interferes with the enzymes responsible for keeping DNA from becoming too tightly wound during replication. This prevents cells from dividing normally and helps to kill bacteria.
