Too bad these eyedrops were very easy to use.

I am taking this medication right now and not sure it's efficacy yet, because i just started, but i wanted to respond to moms comments about it burning their kiddos' eyes, because i am a mom and i know when our babies cry because something is burning it's awful. the medicine does burn when it first hits the eye and for a few minutes after. it's because the eye is so iritated from t ...
