ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the use of moxifloxacin to prevent the spread of bacterial conjunctivitis. It was learned that gram-negative pathogens have been the major cause of bacterial conjunctivitis. Recently, gram-positive pathogens have assumed a more prominent role in causing bacterial conjunctivitis in children. The goal of treating bacterial conjunctivitis is to kill both gram-positive and gram-negative pathogens to stop possible spread and resolve infection. It is said that pediatric ophthalmologists should provide pediatricians with advances in treatment.
