Is there any suggestion as to how to make it easier. I'm 73 years old and I just paid for a 90 day supply and I can't use them. I usually poke myself in the eye trying to squeeze the contents out of the vial.
They are very hard to squeeze out of the plastic vial?

I thought I was on the "Restasis" account, those are the eye drops I'm talking about.
Also, they do not drop out of the vial on their own, if they did, I would not be having a problem.
Hi. I have a prescription for this type of eye drop. I'm not sure, but I believe it is because they do not have a preservative in them. If they were exposed to elements they would probably spoil very quickly. Apparently, they have a series of blocking dams in the dispensing canister that keep outside air out and only open when a significant amount of pressure is exerted on the bottle.
For all you "Tip the Bottle and Tap on it" people. That ain't gonna happen. So give that one up.
This poster is correct. This medicine packaging is terrible.
Some eye drops you aren't supposed to squeeze you're supposed to hold it upside down and wait for the drop. If you squeeze you get too much.
