Day 15 Evaluation of Anterior Chamber [ Time Frame: 15 days ]
The primary efficacy variable of this study is the percentage of patients with a score of zero postoperative inflammation (anterior chamber inflammation, ie, presence of cells in the anterior chamber (0-4) in the study on Day 15. The absence of bacterial infection on Day 15 ± 1 will be assumed to demonstrate that the antibacterial agents in the association of moxifloxacin / acetate Prednisolona1% and moxifloxacin + acetate Prednisolona1% Eye drops are equal in antimicrobial effectiveness, and that they acted in a prophylactic manner to prevent of bacterial infection.

Efficacy of Moxifloxacin/Prednisolone in Prevention of Post Surgery Inflammation
Efficacy of Moxifloxacin 0.5%/Prednisolone 1% Fixed Combination Compared With Individual Administration of Moxifloxacin 0.5% and Prednisolone 1% in the Prevention of Post Operative Inflammation in Patients Having Lasik Surgery
This is a Unicentric, double-blind, randomized, two-arm, parallel-group study to demonstrate the efficacy of moxifloxacin/prednisolone acetate fixed combination compared with individual administration of moxifloxacin + acetate Prednisolone Eye drops in Prevention of Post Operative Inflammation and Infection in LASIK surgery.

  • Examination of normal fundus by direct ophthalmoscopy or indirect;
  • Measurements of intraocular pressure (IOP), treated or untreated, less than or equal to 20 mmHg. Individuals with glaucoma / ocular hypertension are eligible if their blood pressure is controlled by a single ocular hypotensive agent with the exception noted in criterion of exclusion. 16.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • History of chronic ocular inflammatory disease or recurrent (ie, iritis, scleritis, uveitis, iridocyclitis, rubeosis iridis) in the eye to be operated;
  • Any intraocular inflammation (score of cells than Grade 0) to be present during the examination of slit lamp or ocular pain increased in the Grade 1 -2 Day in the study eye (eye operation);
  • Proliferative diabetic retinopathy (eye operation) non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy, moderate to severe (eye operation);
  • Uncontrolled diabetes mellitus;
  • Patients with vision in one eye or vision not correctable to LogMAR 1.0 or better in each eye using the ETDRS framework;
  • Participation in any other clinical study within 12 months prior to surgery, pregnant women, lactating or under conditions of breeding methods that are not using adequate birth control (as defined in the criteria for inclusion, above);
  • Known or suspected allergy or hypersensitivity to moxifloxacin, steroids, topical anesthetics or any other component of the study medication;
  • History or other evidence of severe illness, or other systemic conditions that may cause the patient, in the opinion of the Investigator, the study is inadequate;
