Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that Besivance is equal to Vigamox in safety and tolerance when used prophylactically in subjects undergoing routine cataract surgery.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Corneal Health Cataract Surgery Drug: besivance Drug: vigamox Phase 4

Detailed Description:

Subjects will be assigned to receive either Besivance or Vigamox (1:1) to be administered as 1 drop in the study eye 4 times daily starting 3 days prior to cataract surgery and continuing for 7 days post-operatively.

Sixty subjects (30 from Ophthalmology Consultants and 30 from Ophthalmology Associates) of any race and either sex, requiring cataract extraction with planned implantation of a posterior chamber intraocular lens.
