Are Preservative-Free Eye Drops a Better Option?
Preservative-free eye drop formulations have been shown to significantly improve symptoms in patients with severe dry eye disease (keratoconjunctivitis sicca) while showing few to no adverse effects.
However, preservative-free eye drops come in single-use vials and are significantly more expensive than multi-dose products.
Additionally, their packaging often makes them difficult to use. This is a concern, given that dry eye disease is most common in older individuals.
