    This is extremely expensive, running between $75-$150 for an extremely small bottle, even with insurance. Ask your provider for an alternative for pink eye treatment that is affordable. If your doctor balks at looking up the cost, MAKE HIM OR HER tell you. Medical providers should provide this before you walk out of the clinic!

    Why this medicine is so expensive?, ppl here say it costs around 100$ and more. It's a RIPP OFF! Here in Slovenia it costs only 8 eur, and I don't need to pay this either, because health care covers it. I'm telling you someone is earning very big bucks on you. I've used Tobrex, Tobradex, Azyter, but none would help. Vigamox helped right away.

    Update of previous review: The drops worked wonders for the pink eye, but now I'm suffering from lasting dry eye because of the Vigamox I think. By the end of the day, my eyes are very dry, and when I wake up in the morning, I can't even open them for a few minutes. It feels like my eye lids are stuck to my eyeballs. I guess it's better than pink eye, but I'd rather not have any si ... Show Full Comment

    These drops worked wonders for me! I was using Polymyxin B Sulfate-Trimethoprim Ophthalmic for a week with no results. With the Vigamox, I noticed a difference right away. Within two doses, the eye discharge was virtually gone, and after a couple days, I feel like I'm almost back to normal. No more swelling, itching, discharge, crusty eyes, or pain. There is still some redness, but it is rapid ... Show Full Comment
