    My doctor recommended these drops and they work very well! One thing to note is that the top will click back into place so they vial can be used several times throughout the day instead of the single (very costly) use the manufacturer recommends. What a cost savings! My doctor actually is the one who mentioned it. She said to keep the vial in a clean tissue to prevent contamination and discard after 1 day.

    I bought this brand on the recommendation of my eye doctor who told me I needed a preservative-free drop and thus needed to use the single use vials. To me, this product does not moisturize nearly as well as Thera Tears. What I do prefer over the Thera Tears packaging is that this vial has just the right amount of drops for a single use and can also be recapped for use a very short time later. I have chronic dry eyes due to Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and need some type eye moisturizer on a daily basis, often multiple times a day, so this fits easily in my purse and, as I said previously, can be recapped.

      Comments about Refresh Optive Sensitive Preservative-Free Lubricant Eye Drops, 30 ea:

      This product was recommended by my ophthalmologist because you can use it as often as needed since it has no preservatives. Although there are separate vials, it is worth it.

        Comments about Refresh Optive Sensitive Preservative-Free Lubricant Eye Drops, 30 ea:

        This was provided by my doctor after LASIK surgery. I bought this same drop because I wanted to use a drop that was safe for my eye. After 2 weeks I bought the Refresh Optive with preservatives and this one without preservatives is WAY better. The bottled version has a larger, harder to control drop that hits my eye then immediately rolls down my face. The small vial gives just the right amount and stays in place. It also doesn't gum up my eyelashes like the one with preservatives. Although they are single use vials I can get about 8 drops from each one so I just keep in a clean, safe place and use until empty.

        Only con would be the price compared to the preservative version.

          Makes my eyes more dry but I keep using them since I have a pack of 30 but I'm very unhappy with them and can't wait for the week to be over so I can use some that have preservatives in them.

          I have arthritic hands/fingers and squeezing the plastic tubes has been a difficult thing for me. I will look to purchase this product in a dropper bottle, no squeezing and twisting to gain access...

          It works great, once I got it into my eyes and not all over my face, the dresser or the mirror~

            I like that these drops are preservative-free. Most eye drops burn my eyes, but these truly are for sensitive eyes. They are also economical because you can put the twist-off top back on and use more than once. I can use one container three different times, morning, afternoon, and right before bed. I definitely recommend these for dry eyes. The only drawback is they don't keep my eyes hydrated as long as I would like.
