VERY THICK SOLUTION TO USE BUT WORKS

Most voted negative review

Get a different anti biotic. There are plenty out there that work just as well. These drops are horrible. I've been using them for pink eye and they are incredibly hard to self administer. I have had several eye infections, burnt cornea etc and I know there are better drops available. Don't use these.

i just followed the instructions given by Novartis who manufactures the product. i pushed from the bottom and difficult to get product out and when i finally did, the drop does not release since it is so viscous. interesting since Alcon is on the box and a few years ago Novartis bought it. may be good product but annoyed on how to use it.

spoke to manufacturer Novartis. the way to get the drops out is to put finger on the bottom and push in so the drop comes out. had trouble and called them. it does not say this anywhere on the directions. the bottle is designed they told me not to squeeze it so drops come out. i told them to show this information. that is nuts not to say that clearly. i haven't tried it but will do it that way from now on.

Developed a non-corneal ulcer on my eye. Went to the Dr asap when I noticed inflammation and constant tearing. Was told to put these in every hour for the next two days including overnight if I can deal with the sleep disruption. Despite faithfully adhering to instructions, first two days saw no improvement in symptoms; searing burning pain with each administration to the point where I called think I might be reacting adversely and was told to tough it out. Returned to Dr 2 days later and was told to shift to every 2 hours for the next two days, then every 4. After 3rd day of repeated searing agony at $167 for a 0.3ml bottle, I returned to Dr and demanded something better and was told this is the best. Given the price, difficulty of administration and literally no relief of pain I sought a 2nd opinion and was given a 'script for Ofloxacin. Was told much the same, tough it out, use regularly, but its cost was $25 for a 10ml bottle, with a significantly easier administration than this. 2nd Dr did say Moxeza was treating the ulcer/infection as there was progress, but conceded that its cost and difficulty was detrimental. I envied those reviewers who enjoyed swift relief with Moxeza, it was not my experience. Advise you store the bottle upside down and flick the end with the cap on several times, then pre-squeeze to cause a drop to bead just before leaving bottle, will greatly ease delivery. Hope your experience is far better than mine.

We have used this twice once for my teenage daughter and she had two rounds. These drops are extremely thick and very difficult to administer and they just do not go into the eye. Went to an opthamologist and got a far better and thin eye drop and it cleared right up. Now having the same issue with young grandson.

I am on day 4 of taking these drops, almost no improvement at all, going to see an Eye Dr today, see if I can get something else that will actually work, and these drops cost me $150!
