Reviews for Moxifloxacin ophthalmic
Vigamox (moxifloxacin) "This is the worst eye drop I have ever experienced. My eyes are dry, itchy, I want to scratch. Extremely red eyes, very dizzy, blurred vision, pain, constant watering of eyes, burning, very light sensitive, unable to even have house light on, blurred vision after putting drops in. I have stopped taking it and going back to doctor to try something different."
Vigamox (moxifloxacin) "I have difficulties using prescription eyedrops because most contain a preservative called benzalkonium chloride that I'm allergic too - my eyes get red, irritated and burn. This eye drop does not have the preservative. It was a life saver for my conjunctivitis! Within 2 days it started to clear up - the drops were easily tolerated."
Vigamox (moxifloxacin) "I received it for secondary bacterial infected Epidemic keratoconjunctivitis (EKC) adenoviral and it is irritating to both eyes after use for 5 days whole eye was swollen and by slit lamp there was large epithelial defects marginal then central and no improvement until stopping this drug , my ophthalmologist told me it was strange reaction so he decided to stop it that was time I got some relief , any body has same experience?"
Vigamox (moxifloxacin) "My eye did swell when I used these eyedrops. It was scary and painful. I don't know why the symptoms list eye swelling under incidents unknown because it happened to me, and I reported it to the prescribing doctor."
"I am using APOTEX moxifloxacin following cataract surgery. The squeeze bottle is made of hard plastic and is almost impossible to squeeze. Consequently I have bumped my eye ball with it multiple times while trying to get the drop into my eye. This is a terrible brand for elderly fingers to manage."
"After one dose my eye got much worse. The discharge increased significantly after the dose, my eye got much redder and it felt like I had something in my eye. My eye looked swollen. I went to Urgent Care and was prescribed Polymyxin B Sulfate and Trimethoprim Ophthalmic Solution which cleared up my eye within 2 days."
Vigamox (moxifloxacin) "Have only been using now for 1 full day, and have not notice much, I no longer have pain in my eye, not as watery but still red at the bottom of my bottom lid. Will continue to use and see what happens!"
"I had this moxifloxacin eyedrop prescribed to prevent infection while my corneal abrasion heals. It seems to be working fine, no sign of infection so far. I have very sensitive eyes, so I was wary of side effects, but experienced nothing special so far besides symptoms expected from the abrasion itself. I had mild headache, I've been tearing up a lot and had irritation in my eye - but that just as well can be the result of the injury."
Vigamox (moxifloxacin) "This is the one medication I can rely on to clear up my conjunctivitis. It is fast and effective."

"The small moxifloxacin bottle is so hard to squeeze, there's a chance of dropping it. Doesn't the manufacturer have quality control? Shouldn't be so difficult to administer a drop."
Vigamox (moxifloxacin) "Been on it for 3 days and so far no improvement"
"I am very sensitive to sunlight. In sunlight I cannot see anything. My problem is improving but sometimes in sunlight vision is difficult and i also have headaches"
