Eye Drops

19 Dec Eye Drops

Please be careful when you buy eye drops over the counter (OTC), especially when the medications contain antibiotics and steroids. We encountered a few patients who used OTC medications without the monitoring of eye specialists and ended up having infections of the cornea. Recently, we encountered a patient with Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) keratitis as a result of non-prescribed OTC medications, and has since been consulted and treated by Dr Gan Chee Chong.
