Comment:
My Zymar has been great I also had an ulcer of the cornea (caused by contact lenses), and this product cleared it up in just a couple of days.

I would definately recommend this to anyone.

Comment:
After suffering severe adverse reactions (immediate and delayed) to zymar ophtalmic which had been prescribed by the opthamologist as a pre-cataract surgery prophylactic use, I learned much later through the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) that Zymar was contraindicated for women of my age with specific prior conditions.
