Action: gentamicin is the antibiotic with the broadest spectrum among aminoglycosides. Polymyxin B is an excellent complement to gentamicin and it is very effective in treating eye infections, especially against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella, Pasteurella, Salmonella and most Proteus. Benzalkonium chloride facilitates the penetration of antibiotics by altering the permeability of the bacterial cell wall. It acts as bacteriostatic and has antifungal properties. Diphenhydramine is an antihistamine intended to mitigate the hypersensitivity generated by histamine. Gentian violet is a skin antiseptic that acts selectively against Gram positive bacteria, especially Staphylococcus. Proxymetacaine is an anesthetic indicated for ophthalmic use. Genta-P does not contain corticosteroids as they decrease natural defense of the injured eye promoting corneal perforation. Unlike aerosol sprays, Genta-P does not contain aerosol propellants, so it does not irritate injured eyes, making eye washing unnecessary and preserving the residual activity of the active ingredients. Finally, the modern dosing system provided with the product ensures an exact dosage of 1 cm³ with each 3 – 4  pulsations, allowing higher yield and considerable savings.
