Eye drops and ointment are used extensively in the treatment of eye disease. They should be used as instructed by the prescribing physician. Most can be used for one month after the bottle has been opened but should then be discarded and a repeat prescription obtained if necessary. Any eye drops or ointment can have side-eﬀects, and any diﬃculty with them should be referred to the prescribing physician.
