Fungal blepharitis, conjunctivitis, and keratitis produced by susceptible organisms such as Fusarium solani are treated with natamycin sterile ophthalmic suspension.



Streptomyces natalensis produces natamycin, a tetraene polyene antibiotic. Natamycin is thought to work by binding to sterols in the fungal cell membrane, causing a shift in membrane permeability that permits critical cellular elements to escape. It has in vitro activity against Candida, Aspergillus, Cephalosporium, Fusarium, and Penicillium, among other yeasts and filamentous fungus. Natamycin is primarily fungicidal, despite the fact that its efficacy against fungi is dose-dependent. Natamycin appears to be effectively concentrated within the corneal stroma but not in the intraocular fluid after topical application.


Dosage & Administration

For fungal keratitis: The preferred initial dosage is 1 drop instilled in the conjuntival sac (s) at 1-2 hours interval. The frequency of application can usually be reduced to 1 drop 6-8 times daily after the first 3-4 days. Therapy should generally be continued for 14 to 21 days or until there is resolution of active fungal keratitis. In many cases, it may be helpful to reduce the dosage gradually at 4 to 7 days intervals to assure the replicating fungus has been eliminated.

For fungal blepharitis & conjunctivitis: Less frequent initial dosage, 1 drop 4-6 times daily may be sufficient.



May increase spread of fungal eye infection when used with topical corticosteroid..



Individuals having a history of hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients in natamycin ophthalmic suspension should avoid it.


Side Effects

Precautions & Warnings

Only for topical application on the eyes. The failure of keratitis to improve after 7-10 days of treatment shows that the illness is caused by a bacterium that is resistant to natamycin.
