Eye Drop – Counselling Tip

“Are you on any other medicines?” This is one of the most common question, health professionals, ask when patients start a new medicine.⁣


Similarly, when a patient is starting a new eye drop, we should also ask “Are you on any other eye drops?”⁣


The use of eye drops maybe started by a lot of different sources, for example:⁣
💧OTC⁣
💧Pharmacist⁣
💧GP⁣
💧Optometrist⁣
💧Ophthalmologist⁣


So it’s important for us to check, for contraindications, if the patient is already using eye drop(s). Equally as important is letting them know, to prevent drops being washed out of the eye they should, “wait at least 5 minutes before putting any other drops in their eye(s).”⁣
