Customer Question

My 82 year old mother accidentally put ciprodex eye drops in her eyes. We flushed them with tap water two times. Poison control said not to be concerned. Is there anything else we should do?

Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
Doctor DanB : There is no reason to be alarmed or concerned. I would not expect this to cause her any harm or discomfort. If her eye is a little uncomfortable though, she can use artificial tears 3 to 4 times per day. However, I do not expect any untoward consequences from using this. Does that make sense?
Doctor DanB : Do you have any other questions about this?
Doctor DanB : If not, your feedback is important to me and will help me improve my encounter with future customers.  Please rate your encounter with me by providing feedback; any positive feedback and/or bonus you may feel prompted to provide would be welcomed and is appreciated.  If you feel like your concerns are not resolved or you have a problem or issue with anything I have said or haven’t said, please don’t issue a negative feedback rating—My goal is your satisfaction and I would rather work together to solve your concerns, until you are satisfied, than have you leave our encounter unhappy and unsatisfied.  My opinion is solely informative and does not constitute a formal medical opinion or recommendation. For a formal medical opinion and/or recommendation you must see an eye doctor. Thanks for your inquiry! 
Doctor DanB : Is there a reason you rated me bad service? How else can I help you?
