can I use an opened dropper twice in one day; AM and PM
Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

What is the name of the medicine that is in the open dropper?

Customer:

RESTASIS

Dr. Rick :

Yes. That is completely safe.

Dr. Rick :

Is there anything else you would like to discuss at this point or have all your questions been answered to your satisfaction?

Customer:

WHY DO THEY SAY NO ?

Dr. Rick :

So they can sell you more (expensive) medicine ;-)

Dr. Rick :

And, they are worried about contamination of the tip of the bottle and the medicine.

Customer:

SHOULD I ?

Dr. Rick :

But, if you just put the bottle on a clean surface, like a table top, you will be fine.

Dr. Rick :

This is what I tell all my patients.....no need to worry

Customer:

THANKS

Dr. Rick :

my pleasure. Have a good day.
