Yes you can but cost: Even though these are made for use in the eyes but it can be used in the ear but the problem is it comes in 3ml bottle and you use 1 drop in eye three times a day.But you need a larger volume for years as much as 3to 4 drops and it finishes pretty fast and you need to get refill faster and it is very expensive about 80 dollars for 3 ml.Generic antibiotic ear drops are effective and much cheaper. ...Read more

Other infections: You have picked a fine place for treatment at Barnes. They clearly are thinking that Vigamox and Tobramycin, which are terrific anti-infectives, have failed to stop your infection. Other possibilities are Herpes of the eye and fungal or amoebic infection which they will certainly look for in further analysis. Since they suggest re-admission, I would go for it. ...Read more
Can I use polysprine eye drops with vigamox that was prescribed by my dr? Im on day 7 with no change in my condition
Why would lubricant eye drops be recommended for conjunctivitis? Was given antibiotics (vigamox) helped for a few days, now given lubricant drops?
Should my friend be concerned about accumulation of fluid in her eye after cataract surgery? She believes the fluid may result from eye drops she's taking. Those are: bromday, predforte, and vigamox.
She : She needs to see her surgeon. In the vast majority of cases, there should be no issues like this. How come she can't get ahold of her surgeon? This makes no sense to me. It's a shame that you have to go online to ask this question for your friend instead of having her call her surgeon directly and resolving the issue in minutes. In my practice, all surgical patients are given my email and cell phone number. That is what i would want if i were the patient! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Expiration date: There should be an expiration date somewhere on the bottle. To be honest, though, i wouldn't push it with eye drops. If it's been more than a few weeks since you opened the bottle and used them, i wouldn't put the drops in my eyes. And never use someone else's medicine. ...Read more
Depends: Pink eye is a generic term which indicates inflammation of the conjunctiva. This inflammation could have numerous sources including viral, allergic and bacterial. Vigamox will only help bacterial conjunctivitis which is not common in adults. Your best bet is to see an eye doctor, identify the source of the inflammation and get the appropriate treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The doc prescribed Vigamox to my father 4 times a day for 3 weeks and I've been mistakenly giving it to him every 4 hours for a week now, what to do?
Probably OK: It does depend on why he was taking it. 4 times a day is higher than normal unless he has a serious corneal infection, but higher does have been used without permanent problems (one study gave a drop every 1 minutes for 5 minutes! and only a little pain & irritation was noted. But call the eye doc & see how you should proceed going forward. What's the silver lining? You'll always double -check! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What can I do to quickly heal corneal abrasion? I have put vigamox already every 2 hours more or less in 24hrs. What else? Im diabetic.
My left eye swollen.Inside is red. And I can't control tearing when I took Vigamox.I started to take this medicine 2 days before.could u suggest sth?
Probably viral.: External bacterial eye infections typically clear rapidly with a strong 4th generation antibiotic like Vigamox. This suggests it may be viral. If you have severe bright light sensitivity, tearing & foreign sensation, you need a slit lamp biomicroscope exam in an eye doctor's office. This could be a foreign body particle embedded in your cornea, a herpetc infection or EKC from adenovirus 8 or 19. ...Read more
