    These drops cost me $170 with insurance and do not work at all. 72 hours into the prescription and my eye is only getting worse, the swelling has now doubled in size and pain is radiating up from my eye to my temple. I need to go to the doctor again asap and probably pay another $200 for that visit plus another $150 for different drops. I'm 29, eat extremely healthy and workout regularly, t ... Show Full Comment

    Doctor prescribed this to our whole family. 2 drops a day for kids 1 year and older and 3 drops a day for adults for pink eye. It is expensive (even with insurance), but the manufacturer does have a coupon that brings the cost to $25 (vigamox.com). It does sting, but it does seem to work.
