I'm currently using this expensive eye drops, a vial has enough med for 2 dosages, what happens if I save the vial for the next dosage instead of discard it?
Restasis - what happens if you use the vial twice instead of once?

The main reason for discarding it would be that once opened and left sitting, there is a risk of microbial contamination. There are no preservatives in this preparation. The single use vials must be discard after one time dosing.
