Broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent, fluoroquinolone. It has a bactericidal effect. Levofloxacin blocks DNA gyrase (topoisomerase II) and topoisomerase IV, disrupts supercoiling and cross-linking of DNA breaks, inhibits DNA synthesis, causes deep morphological changes in the cytoplasm, cell wall and membranes of bacterial cells.

After instillation into the eye, levofloxacin is well preserved in the tear film. Studies in healthy volunteers showed that the average concentrations of levofloxacin in the tear film, measured 4 and 6 hours after topical application, were 17 μg / ml and 6.6 μg / ml, respectively. Five out of six volunteers had levofloxacin concentrations of 2 μg / ml or higher 4 hours after instillation. Four of six volunteers maintained this concentration 6 hours after instillation. The average concentration of levofloxacin when applying eye drops in aqueous humor is statistically significantly higher than the average concentration of ofloxacin (p = 0.0008). In fact, it is approximately twice as high as the average concentration of ofloxacin (1139.9 ± 717.1 ng / ml and 621.7 ± 368.7 ng / ml, respectively).
The average concentration of levofloxacin in blood plasma 1 h after application is from 0.86 ng / ml per day to 2.05 ng / ml. Cmax of levofloxacin in plasma, equal to 2.25 ng / ml, was detected on the 4th day after two days of drug administration every 2 hours up to 8 times / day. Cmax of levofloxacin, achieved on the 15th day, is more than 1000 times lower than those concentrations that are observed after oral administration of standard doses of levofloxacin.
Treatment of anterior eye infections caused by microorganisms sensitive to levofloxacin.

Animal studies have not shown any particular risk. But due to the lack of clinical trial data and because of the risk of the effects of fluoroquinolones on the formation of cartilage, the prescription of the drug is possible only in cases where the expected benefit of therapy for the mother outweighs the possible risk to the fetus.
If it is necessary to prescribe the drug during lactation, breastfeeding should be discontinued.
