  • Because it works directly on the eye, you won't get the same side effects (like diarrhea) you would if you take antibiotics by mouth.
  • Available as a generic medication.
Downsides

  • You may need to use Iquix (Levofloxacin) multiple times during the first few days, which can be inconvenient.
  • Even though this is available as a generic, compared to other antibiotic eye drops, it is still more expensive.
