Customer Question

I s opcon-x safe to use for an eyewash?
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the dog?
Customer: I dusted her with DE as I saw a flea and wanted to wash her eyes just in case she may have gotten a little in her eyes.
JA: Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the veterinarian. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Winnie. 3 years
JA: Is there anything else the veterinarian should be aware of about Winnie?
Customer: No

Is it the opcon A eye drops. I am not finding any opcon X?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I was wrong , it is opcon-a
Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 2 months ago.

So, I would not use it. I would get a plain sterile saline eye wash from a local drug or grocery store. You don't want to put chemicals in Winnie's eye unnecessarily. Please ask any follow up questions. You can post follow up questions for a few days, even after rating my response. Take care
