she gave me antibodic eye drops to use for 7days, do i still use my otc drops for my chronic dry eyes?

SL is right. If you use your old OTC drops you might reinfect yourself. Ask your eye Dr if she/he has any samples for you to use while taking the antibiotic drops and ask how close together you can take them. They usually want you to wait a hour or so after taking the antibiotic before using artificial tears. Once the infection is clear and you have finished the antibiotics you can buy larger bottles of your OTC drop and pitch the samples. That way you know you should not be reinfecting your self. I know, it stinks because good OTC drops are expensive. Some eye Drs are pretty generous with samples though so maybe they will give you enough for a while!
