    This medication seems to help my dry eyes. The vials are a pain - but I prefer them to the multi use bottle. The bottle is very hard to get drops out of and then you get more than one drop at a time. And the bottle doesnâ??t even last 30 days yet itâ??s same cost as double the amount of vials.

    Since taking this eye drop, I started noticing I am dizzy. So I am not going to use it to see if the dizziness goes away. I can't chance being dizzy and having a bad fall.
