July 19th battery acid got in my eye. Have been on many meds, but am now only on Vigamox drops and doxy-cycl hyc 50mg cap mutual. Was told I had Roseacea. Am I on the right track to healing? ## Hi Mae, I'm very sorry to hear about the battery acid incident with your eye. I couldn't even begin to fathom how that might've felt, but one thing that doesn't add up in my mind is how rosacea (i.e. reddening or swelling of the skin) correlates with battery acid in your eye..? Did some of the acid get on your face/skin too? Vigamox (moxifloxacin) on the other hand is used to treat bacterial infections in the eyes, so that to me seems like an appropriate course of action if an infection has been confirmed.

need coupon for vigamox ## There are no manufacturer coupons for VIGAMOX 0.5% EYE DROPS. The best form of a coupon is probably going to be your insurance company; that should help cover most or all of the cost of the medication up to a certain amount (depending on your plan). If you don't have health insurance then your certainly not alone with 90 percent of America, and can only hope for the best. The webpage below says they offer some sort of group buying discount; it may be worth taking a look at: Also, below is another coupon site for prescription drugs. Although the manufacturer may not have a discount, this might be an option; I personally don't know how reliable these sites are, but its worth a shot: Please post back if you have any other questions or comments to add. ## ...

How close together can theses drops be used the day before catarac surgery ## Because every surgeon has their own unique set of rules to follow before and after the operation it would be best to schedule an appointment with the surgeon to ask him directly. When you schedule a consultation prior to the surgery, remind them to discuss medications that you may or may not take, any prescriptions and how to use them, and how to prepare for the day of your surgery. Additionally, the surgeon usually gives the patient a list of pre and post operative care instructions to follow before going in. These instructions include what you should and should not be taking prior to and after the surgery. If you did not receive this I would ask them well before going in. I hope this helps!
