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

Completing 5th day. No positive effect at all. Inflamation, light sensitivity and pain remain the same as the day I went to doctor. Will explore options and alternatives with doctor today.

Works well to fight the bacteria, also fights your wallet. The 3ml bottle sells for over $86...multiply that by 3 people in the house with pink eye and you have $265 in very expensive eye drops.

Comment:
Do not use, especially on kids! This antibiotic is much more expensive than others that usually work $95 vs $6, and this type of antibiotic has side effects including death, induced arthritis (in rabbits), and negative impacts that show up six weeks to a year later. The antibiotic works by disrupting DNA. It has been pulled from market due to these risks for most other applications. If your genet ... Show Full Comment
