    This drug might kill bacteria but at what cost? It made my eyes itch, burn, hurt, red, swollen and really crusty and goopy. Pink eye was a joke in compare to side effects of these drops. I felt so miserable I had to stop it. My guess is this drug is a really bad eye irritant. There are better options out there (ex: tobramycin).

    WASTE OF MY $4!!!!!!! Started taking this on 09/10/20114, my eye began to burn after second use. I thought a bug had flew in my eye because I was outside. The coach saw nothing in my eye. This pain lasted for about 5 minutes. Woke up with crust in my eye this morning and eye itching terribly. Decided to look up product and came across this site. Saw all the terrible reviews, called Dr. immediately ... Show Full Comment

    First dose at 1PM, hurt eye immediately; second dose at 5PM, hurt much worse, not sure it was supposed to relieve red but it did not, only got worse. Called and have another med to be picked up (don't have drops yet so not sure what the product is) but found this feedback helpful. Seldom do you find an eye product that produces pain rather than relieves pain.
