Hi, I've had laser eye surgery (LASIK) surgery 3 weeks ago to correct my vision. I've finished the initial week-long course of prescribed anti-inflammatory & antibiotic drops. I have been using lubricating eye drops and lubricating eye gel for persistent dry eye. I was wondering whether I can use Murine drops which contain berberine 0.2mg as the active ingredient or whether this is unsafe for my eyes? It is all I could buy at the shop until the chemists open tomorrow.
