The appropriate use of antimicrobians has become an emergency matter nowadays, mainly due to the phenomenon of bacterial resistance. With the objective of contributing to increase and update the knowledge on the use of these drugs against the eye infections a literature review on this respect was carried out, in which sepsis and organisms that usually affect the eyeball are related. Other last but not least aspects as occurrence, administration routes, action mechanisms and concentration of antibiotics are also exposed.
