Comment from: Penny, 45-54 on Treatment for 10+ years (Patient) Published: November 20

This medication has greatly assisted me in saving my eyes in many situations including ongoing after effects of Stevens Johnson syndrome, maintaining cornea transplants during healing, and fighting effects of steroids in the other eye also used during healing of cornea transplants.

Mysterious inflammation in right eye for several days, cleared up in 24 hours with these drops although I used them for several more days! Inflammation did not seem like regular "pink eye" infection, just very red and semi-painful right eye. Did not spread to left eye. Great product!

I was prescribed this medication for both eyes, due to 'pink eye' which came on suddenly. Within 12 hours I noticed relief from the redness, itching and gritty-burning sensation. The only side-effect that I noticed is the BAD taste, which could be good for someone not wanting to eat during the holidays...

We have no idea how this worked since the doctor put this in my mother's eye during a cornea transplant. She was charged 807.00 for one dose and Medicare refused to pay and she had to pay for the entire amount.

I was prescribed this eye drop due to "pink eye." As soon as I used the drops, the inflammation and the redness in my eye decreased. After 12 hours my eye looked only bloodshot; the excessive eye watering decreased as well.

Comment from: asdfasdf1, 19-24 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: December 30

Can someone please comment on the effectiveness of this for severe cases of otitis externa (swimmer's ear)? It's been prescribed to me - off label of course since it's not approved for use in the ears - and I'm a little concerned. Has anyone experienced hearing loss? As with everything else there is conflicting information online. I do not want to cause any further damage to my hearing if I can avoid it!
