Vision / Eye Health Overview

The human eye is a sense organ that reacts to light and allows vision. Rod and cone cells in the retina allow conscious light perception and vision including color differentiation and the perception of depth. The human eye can differentiate between about 10 million colors[1] and is possibly capable of detecting a single photon.[2] The eye is part of the sensory nervous system.

Dorzolamide - Timolol Opth Soln 10 ML

I have been on Dorzolamide - Timolol for the past eight months , for use in one eye . This drug has reduced my eye pressure from 21 to 13 . I receive a 10 ML vial or bottle, which should last approximately 45 days . However after about 28 days the bottle is empty with proper use . What i discovered in the first four bottles is that , they were approx. 70 % full . I registered a complaint with my health insurance , which informed me to check the level of the bottle before leaving the pharmacy. When i acquired the fifth bottle , it was completely filled or 100%. I served on a Grand Jury for medicaid fraud . This is no doubt a case of fraud . A prescription bottle of Dorzolamide - Ttimolol 10 ML should be filled to the top of the bottle. ## Have you informed your pharmacy of the issue? Hav...

Prefrin Eye Drops For Red Eyes

Ophthalmologist prescribed PREFRIN eye drops for red eyes nearly 20 years ago. Is it available now? My problem is allergic in nature (itchy eyes = angular conjunctivitis mild at inner angles of eyes ). Appreciate response from OLD-TIMERS. ## I have had prefrin prescribed approximately 25 years ago and I use this daily although cautioned by optomotrists that this could lead to a permanent red vessel eye condition. I do however find these drops comfortable to use and the removal of red in my eyes. I can no longer find this product and pharmacies all indicate"out of stock". I assume that the product is no longer available and perhaps I could be informed of a replacement or alternative product. Information would greatly be appreciated. ## I used to use Prefrin in the 80's & ...

Can Latisse backfire?

I used Latisse successfully for several months & loved the look. But then my lashes started to fall out, leaving me with short stubby ones less full than when I began the latisse. Does anyone know if it stops working, or the body gets resistant to it, or have any of you had the same reaction? Thanks. ## Same thing happened to me - I am wondering if this is a bad batch of Latisse - how would one know until eyelashes stop growing or fall out? ## It is normal for your body to eventually get used to any type of medication you are using, even a topical one and it may stop working as well as it once did. The warnings in the product information also say that other changes in hair growth may occur and though it is rare, this could involve shorter or less lashes. Some drugs don't work at...

The reason Hypotears was discontinued.

Loved Hypotears and used for years. I recently found out that it contains BAK (Benzalkonium chloride) as a preservative which has shown to cause cellular deterioration of parts of the eye. I am pretty sure that this is the reason it was discontinued. It is very upsetting to know that BAK was never listed as an ingredient. ## Hello Russell, I'm not positive that is the reason that this particular brand of carboxymethylcellulose sodium has been discontinued as there are others that also contain benzalkonium chloride that are still available on the market. There has been a lot of speculation as to why the brand has been discontinued as the reason was never officially released. Some speculate that the preservatives were too harsh while others believe that the cost to manufacture had gon...
