  Description
Moxifloxacin/Gatifloxacin Treatment

Both eyes were treated. Each participant was randomly assigned to either:

Group A: Moxifloxacin eyedrops on right eye; Gatifloxacin eyedrops on left eye

Group B: Gatifloxacin eyedrops on right eye; Moxifloxacin eyedrops on left eye

Eyedrops were given as 1 drop 4 times daily for 1 week or until complete re-epithelization (usually 3-4 days) after surgery
