Does your doctor insist on preservative-free eye drops?

For those using moisturising eye drops for regular use, does your doctor insist on preservative-free drops? Those little single-use vials can be such a nuisance.

  1. Hey Wendy! Great question. I'm hopeful that my comment will help "bump" this up so others can see it and potentially respond! Hope you're having a great day today 😀 -Alesandra (MacularDegeneration.net Team)

    1. Thanks Alesandra. I worry that I'm not using the preservative-free drops. The Mayo clinic says if you use drops with preservatives more than four times a day they can irritate your eyes. I will ask my doctor but just wondered what others used. Wendy - Advocate.
