OTC Eye Drops for Dry Eye Patients

by Andrew Morgenstern, OD, Walt Whitley, OD

Where should over-the-counter (OTC) eye drops fit in a patient’s prescription treatment regimen? Andy says that OTC medications are important to the overall welfare of a patient, but explains the balancing act of keeping treatment regimens as simple as possible for optimal patients’ adherence. Walt says that OTC drops have a role to play, but it depends on the severity of disease in patients. He adds that prescribing too many medications can lead to poor compliance.
