ciprofloxacin

This is an antibiotic eye drop that is also available in pill form – it is commonly called “cipro.”  This antibiotic is in the fluoroquinolone class of drugs and therefore has good general bacterial coverage … including covering most strains of pseudomonas (a particularly virulent bacteria found with many contact lens).  Newer medicines in this class include moxifloxacin (Vigamox or Moxeza), gatifloxacin (Zymaxid) and Besivance.
