    After a week of using a different eye drop without clearing out my pink eye completely, this one hasn't either. The swelling went down after 2 doses, redness took about 6. But still after 5 days I'm still waking up with matted eyes and my eyes are still extremely itchy.

    Well, I must be different as I reacted badly to this product. My eyes started oozing like crazy and wouldn't stop all night! I was going crazy and then the gunk gave my face a rash and my eyes were more bloodshot. I had an allergy it seems. I switched to Gentamacin next morning after telling my doc and it was much gentler and stopped my oozing immediately

    Went to my doctor on my second day with pink eye. My left was almost swollen shut (both top and bottom lids) and a couple hours after my first dose the swelling already went down a lot. With one day of use so far, my swelling is completely gone and symptoms have subsided aside from a little bit of redness. Everyone reacts differently to meds but its been quite effective for me.

We went immediately to the doctor and were all 3 prescribed this. So far so good..no negative effects for anyone. My eyes feel a tad bit dry and my nasal passages as well but nothing too bad. Tomorrow is the last day and I was tha ... Show Full Comment
