Works for Eye Pain
I needed this as a result of a yard accident. I caught a stick in the eye and it scratched my cornea pretty badly. It is common to get infections from those scratches, especially from yard waste. The drops worked, had no side effects, and I never got an infection from the scratch while it healed. Healing of the eye takes a long time and is never really as strong again, so sometimes the cornea comes loose from eyelid adhesion while sleeping. If lubricating eye drops are not working after a bad night, I use 1 drop of Moxeza and the pain goes away in a couple hours. The cornea readheres and then it is fine again after a couple days. It is important to stay hydrated, and use eye gel at night to prevent eyelid adhesion after an injury. The liquid is like a gel, and feels like corn syrup, sticky and yellow.

Scary and more scary
I began using this eye drop after my doctor prescribed it to me for pink eye. The following happened the next morning, and throughout the next week. These things have yet to get better. Locked Jaw-Left Side Severe Back Back lower back-left side Severe Knee Pain/Swelling/40ML of fluid removed-Left side Swollen Glands-Left Side only Right Middle Finger stiffness and joint paint I'm a healthy 32 year old woman. This is the first time anything like this has ever happened to me. I've been tested for bacterial infection, etc. and nothing. I've found the the oral use of this medication has caused a lot of similar affects that I'm having now. This drug is potent, and the affects are far worse that what is listed.
