If you have conjunctivitis ("pink eye"), a healthcare provider may prescribe Moxeza. The antibiotic comes in the form of an eye drop and works by killing bacteria that cause the infection. Although most people tolerate this medication well, it may not be suitable for people with certain allergies or for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Common side effects may include fever and eye irritation.

Moxeza™ (moxifloxacin eye drops) is a prescription medication approved for treating bacterial conjunctivitis, commonly called "pink eye." It is similar to Vigamox®, an older version of the same medication. However, Moxeza is formulated differently and only has to be used twice a day (Vigamox is typically used three times a day).
Moxeza is manufactured by Alcon Laboratories, Inc.
The active ingredient in Moxeza is moxifloxacin. Moxifloxacin belongs to a class of antibiotics known as fluoroquinolones, also known as "quinolones."
Like other fluoroquinolones, moxifloxacin kills certain bacteria that cause infections. It does this by interfering with bacterial enzymes called DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV. Bacteria need these enzymes to make DNA, which is essential for the bacteria to multiply.
