General Information on Taking Your Dose

Considerations to keep in mind when using Vigamox include the following:
 
  • This medication comes in the form of an eye drop.
     
  • In order to prevent contamination of the drops, do not touch the tip of the dropper to any surface, including the surface of the eye.
     
  • You should not wear contact lenses while using Vigamox, since contact lenses should not be worn while you have an eye infection.
     
  • For this drug to work properly, it must be taken as directed. Be sure to take it for the full time prescribed, even if your eye infection gets better sooner.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dose of Vigamox, please talk with your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
