Acivir Eye Ointment is an antiviral medication that treats herpes simplex eye infections. It works by stopping the virus from multiplying on your eyeball’s surface (cornea). This inhibits the spread of new viruses and clears the infection in your eyes.
Acivir Eye Ointment should only be used on the outside of the eye. Use it according to your doctor’s instructions for dosage and duration. Before and after administering the drug, wash your hands. Use it for as long as your doctor recommends and do not stop taking it even if you feel better.
