I bought these eye drops thinking I needed them , but after paying 125. for a small bottle its the last time purchasing it, I will just use over the counter , its such a ripe off for such a small bottle, there is no way that is going to last a month.

Have been on this for years since lots of wood burning stoves in this neighborhood. Ugh! Now on medicare and don't think I can afford the high price.
